One was a gulf coast boxie and the other was an ornate. NOT WATER TURTLES. Sadly, this kind of stuff happens to reptiles all the time regardless of whether they come from an auction or pet store. People need to be educated.
That's so sad. I've always loved turtles and, unfortunately for the turtle, had one as a kid. I wish that to buy any living creature you had to take a basic test on that particular type of animal, just to prove you're not a moron.

Not impressed. I supposed I have issues and strong opinions on ownership of exotics all for bragging rights, because lets face it, you can't do anything else with them.

Love isn't putting a wild animal in your backyard and expecting it to be grateful and love you for it.

This. Sounds like a horrible idea to me.
