My son's and I were playing in the sandbox yesterday, and we were shocked to see a turtle scooting across our grass heading towards the deck. It appeared to be coming from the creek, we live right along the creek on shadow mountain drive here in Conifer. If you have lost your pet (presumably you would live up creek from us along shadow mountain or black mountain drive somewhere) please let me know. Please describe any markings and the approximate size/lenght of the turtle so I know its yours. The turtle is a pond slider or some type, probably a red eared slider. It seems to be healthy although he is a bit stressed from the ordeal and not taking any food yet. I have previously owned a pond slider type turtle coincidentally, so we will take care of him until we can determine the best course of action.

Obviously, its possible someone released the turtle on purpose because they no longer wanted a pet. My son's would like to keep him of course, but I will entertain any reptile lover's who might like to adopt him. It is my understanding that IMHS does not really take reptiles. I have contacted them anyway to alert them in case a pet owner is searching there to find their pet. I have also contacted the Colorado Reptile Humane Society. We also posted a sign on shadow mountain where we live.

Thank you

If you dont find his owner and decide not to keep him I have a very large setup for turtles, with proper UVA/UVB lighting, filtration, heater etc...

My buddy Cornelius, a Chinese golden stripe may like a room mate.

also, does anybody out there have a pet turtle that could spare some reptile/turtle pellets? I am hoping he/she might eat some since veggies don't seem to be to his liking. We don't have any denver trips planned at the moment and I hate to drive all the way down just for that. I live on shadow mountain, but work in pine junction. thanks! Lee

Ive taken custody of this handsome fellow in the event his owners come forward.
If not he will be well cared for here and the finders have visitation. :)
