In Reply to: Not a stinkpot... more... posted by keri on May 11, 2003 at 18:10:52:

First of all it IS a striped mud turtle not a stinkpot but.......
saying that it should be released is silly! The odds of it surviving are quite small. Besides, it is not like it was purchased from a commercial collector. Making an issue about somebody finding and keeping a hatchling mud turtle is being pretty militant. How many of us started keeping turtles because of a hatchling we caught. I for one became interested in reptiles BECAUSE of a hatchling striped mud turtle.
Give them a break and be encouraging!
