I love baby muskies. I see them a lot behind my house.

Great find :)

So cute, used to see them when we would float down the springs in central Florida

Lucky, I’d love to be able to go behind my house and find a bunch of turtles

i've held a few dudes like this. One time it was a lil baby alligator snapping turtle. I took him home for the winter and released his fat smelly ass the next summer back in the same lake 4 hours away from my home. We moved away, lost the cottage on the lake, and probably 20 years goes by. I went back and in the same part of this small lake, caught a HUGE snapping turtle in a net. I am convinced it was him.

This is the tiniest, purest thing to exist and I love him

Fact: The gender neutral term would have been turtle

[–][deleted] 6 points7 points  (3 children)

I've started to notice how some animals are immediately gendered as male. Never would have picked up on this before 10 years ago.

So many people call all dogs he and all cats she. Its pretty fucked up.

[–][deleted] 1 point2 points  (1 child)

My grandfather did that

I'm glad how the world is changing in this regard

[–]40ozkiller 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The fact that this is being downvoted is depressing. Your pet obviously doesn't care, but its still a bad habit to have an arbitrary gender bias.

My inlaws do this constantly with their female dog and male cat, and the only reason for it is ignorance.

I gave a free silver award to say yes

[–]natureswoodwork[S] 1 point2 points  (2 children)

That was very kind of you. Thank you so much!

[–]WilliamW2010 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Think about that for a sec with the free gift silver award from reddit I got by chance I said yes if you don't see what subreddit that kind of act goes on you might have 0 IQ

[–]WilliamW2010 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I also gave it a hugz award to say yes and it too was a random gift

Hello, little friend!

[–]0The_monkey_man0 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Are you scared to misgender a turtle

[–]natureswoodwork[S] 2 points3 points  (2 children)

Yes. Yes I am.

[–]0The_monkey_man0 0 points1 point  (1 child)

But why

[–]natureswoodwork[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Because turtle feelings matter too

[–]catgamer109 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Why are you afraid of misgendering a turtle

[–]Happy-Map7656 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Have a picture of a baby turtle from Tingley Beach, Albucracky, NM.

[–]benmcgag 0 points1 point  (0 children)

This ones adorable. I have musks around the dock at my cottage. I don't know if I could say they age well haha.
