Buttercup is a very large turtle. I rescued her from my ex-husband's house when she was about 5 years old. She was in an aquarium with no water for swimming and no lighting. When I got her the proper environment she quadrupled in size within approx 18 months. Her 40 gallon tank does not seem big enough for her anymore. I am a single mom with a small house and am having a difficult time accommodating this pet and being able to afford all the necessary supplies. We will continue to love and care for her until we find her a very good home.
