Franklin is a male Red-eared Slider, who is around 12 months old. He was rescued from a home that was unable to care for him. Turtles are a lot of work as they require a clean and warm environment, proper feeding and monitoring for any sign of illness, according to H3 Pet Supply, but are described as wonderful pets for the right home. Adults, not children, must be willing to take primary responsibility for properly caring for a turtle. Franklin is described as a very social turtle, he doesn’t mind being handled and is an active swimmer. H3 Pet Supply reported Nov. 5 that Franklin has been adopted..
