(This is part of a collection of sales, so if you're interested in leopard geckos too, I will have some of those up for sale eventually as well).

Here are the pictures, first off:

Here's the basic story: I'm moving to Florida from California in a few months and I've come to the conclusion that I need to reduce how many animals I have partly because I'll be attending graduate school and would prefer not to reduce how much time I give to their care.

So, up for sale are three common musk turtles (I'm pretty sure that's what they are). They're called Larry, Curly, and Mo (you could certainly rename them, but I think the names are cute), and they are all probably about two or three years old. I got them from my mother because they weren't taking good care of them some years back. As far as I know they are all healthy. All active, all eating like little pigs, and all cute as a button.

Coming with them, provided you want the stuff, are two enormous containers of food (turtle pellets and shrimpy things), the pump (a Vetra Whisper, which is quite good), and their container/cage w/ all their rocks and what not. I'd prefer it all went together, just because it's easier on you, easier on me, etc.

The catch is you'd have to pick them up. I don't have a car at the moment and I really don't feel comfortable shipping animals because I've never done it before and it's practically summer. I live in Felton, which is just a bit up the hill from Santa Cruz on the way to San Jose. I will be in Felton until mid June and then I will be either in Eugene, OR or Sacramento for a bit (going to both, just not sure in which order), so if you want these guys, but live closer to those locales, we can probably work something out for that. I could possibly hold them until Florida (Gainesville) if you really want it.

If you're interested in these guys, feel free to send me a PM with a reasonable offer for the lot. I'd prefer they all stay together, just because they've always been together and I feel like they're all good pals.

Other info: the pump is pretty new. Works great, but will likely need a new filter eventually (still works, but, you're supposed to change them every so often). If you have any questions, feel free to ask.
