18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Watson's 2nd Birthday

This is Watson and I celebrating his second birthday. This is significant because when you raise a turtle in captivity, you only have like a 5% chance they will live past two years. My vet told us years ago, if you make it past two years, you should have the turtle for years and years to come. Watson is very photogenic and loves to pose for the camera. We did this as well for his first birthday.
