      Alvin and Theodore are favorites, but little Simon is a handsome fella, too

      Will Theodore's neck always be crook'd like that? (Yes, I am turtle illiterate )

          yes, that's how he "hides." it's straight normally, but instead of pulling their head into their shell, the side-neck turtles do that!

              So cute. I guess the side neck does not bring its head inside but just tucks it to the side? How different. You learn something everyday.

                  Very cute! I just love turtles, I've always had one or two at my house. Love to see them pig out and sun bathe.
