At only 1.5 years old, this handsome little reptile is hoping his forever home is just around the corner. However there will be no need for a terrarium or tank for this Turtle, as he will make himself at home right on your couch!

Turtle can be a bit shy and overwhelmed when exposed to new people and places and will need someone willing to take things slowly with him. However just like his namesake, once he comes out of his shell you will find a soft and affectionate little Turtle! If there is one thing we know for sure about our Turtle, it’s that he loves his food! He enjoys everything from training to enrichment – as long as there is food involved he is a happy participant. Turtle is after a quieter home without too much going on beyond the fence and without young kids disturbing the serenity, although another canine around his size wouldn’t be out of the question. Provided you live in a quiet neighbourhood, Turtle is suitable for full time workers. He enjoys spending time indoors with his humans, however a backyard is also required as a place for him to retreat to when he needs a break.

So pop on over to the GAP reptile park to pick up your very own Turtle today! Turtle is available now on a foster-to-adopt basis.
