2 Common Snapping Turtles need new home(s)

Posted yesterday:

"I am rehoming my snapping turtles, which Im pretty gutted to be doing, but health issues are a major factor.
2 very healthy snappers(not alligator snappers) the big one, whom i will very much miss, is pretty soppy for a snapper, allowing you to tickle his head etc. but doesnt like being out of the water. thought to be male and about 5 years old, shell length about a foot long + big head and tail.
the smaller one, thought to be female, much livelier and more aggressive, shell about 7 inches long. came to me to be looked after during a house move and was nable to be collected.
like i said, very healthy, on weekly feeds, so not obese, currently living in a 5x2x2 aquarium, NOT INCLUDED.
need to be gone by next weekend, or will be taken to an animal shelter"

Hi,
I am keen to find a snapping turtle.
I have kept sliders for a number of years and I really want a snapper.
If you want to chat please let me know, I am West of London but I could travel up to get them.
All the best.

Ian

Sorry, I probably should have said, I have a 5x2x2 setup and a pond outside where my sliders live nowadays
Happy to chat
Cheers

Ian

Orginal post was from over 8 years ago, and the link says they've been rehomed.

Always nice to see new blood reading through the forum though :)
