Turtles make extremely interesting pets, but they are not toys. They should never be brought into the home as an entertaining novelty for young children who are not taught how to care for them. There is a long history of this unintended abuse of turtles, which usually results in their sudden demise. The most prevalent danger to pet turtles is from children “playing with them.” Turtles are not cuddly pets like dogs and cats. They do not require that you spend your day in their company. They actually like it when they are left alone.
The enjoyment of your pet turtle usually comes from simply observing its behavior. Careful responsible handling is critical to their fulfilling the promise of their expected longevity. If you’re bringing a pet turtle into a home with young children, make sure that they understand how to treat these interesting pets. With proper supervision, the turtle’s presence can offer a great opportunity to teach the children about responsibility.
