Favorite childhood pet edition

Did you have a favorite pet as a child? What was it?

My childhood pets are 4 tortoises. They can live very long, I suppose but they don't stay small. In the end, I had to let them go in a nearby stream. They got too big and heavy to care for and I live in apartment after marriage. So no place or garden to let the tortoise get some sunlight. I use to put them in a tub but my back was hurt during one session of cleaning these tortoises.

Where did it come from?

I bought them at a local night market. This is like flea markets but it is at night. They costs 50cents each in my currency. They were put in a small plastic aquarium.

What was the coolest thing about your pet?

They are quiet. Tortoise do not make any noise. They are really easy to care for before they got too big.


  1. Sounds like a perfect pet to me! Thanks for playing along!

  2. Sounds like great pets. You probably need a pond for them though.

    Thanks for stopping by my site.

  3. How neat. I've had turtles before, red eared sliders, but never tortoises. How many years do they live? 30? 40?
