> I had a Slider turtle (I think, it had webbed rear feet and long claws on the front. It looked superficially like a red-ear without the red). I raised it for 6 years from a pup until it ran away. Boy I miss that turtle. :-( It sure was excited to see me enter a room!

Any species of aquatic turtle that eats fish will work. The virtue of
Kinosternids is that they are small and probably the easiest to
accomodate in captivity.
