Awww....turtles are soooo cute.
Once upon a time, quite a few years back, I came a cross a giant turtle on the road. I'm not sure what kind it was. It was green with red markings, and it was obviously tame because it didn't hide when I got out of my work van to go move it to someplace safer.
Oh, I wish I would have kept it. There's no telling what may have happened to it after I put it in the shade of an evergreen tree. The thing that I remember best about it was the way it just kept on trying to walk even after I picked it up off the ground.
I love turtles.
I must congratulate you on saving this one from certain death. It's something to be proud of. May I suggest, given it's luck in finding someone like you as its new owner, the name "Lucky"?
The only other thing I can think of is "Turtle", but you have to pronounce it like Dana Carvey in that one movie.
Revenge is nothing more than another way of perpetuating abuse.

Having a friend who will keep a secret for you is worthless compared to a friend who won't keep a secret from you.
