My new baby...Watson

This is Watson. He is my new turtle. I have had turtles since I was about 6 years old. My last one, Zack, had to be put down on June 14, 2018 due to cancer. I was devastated as I had him 22 years and he was my baby. We spent an entire day and took two ferries to pick Watson up from a home that didn't want him anymore. He was only 3-4 weeks old when we got him.
