This was a turtle display inside a pet store, which featured these two red-eared slider turtles, Trachymys scripta elegans, that were lazily posed in contact upon a piece of faux driftwood, as they were warming themselves under the overhead display illumination. Care need be taken when purchasing turtles, for the consumer needs to know that these reptiles can potentially carry germs known as Salmonella, which are can be dangerous, especially to children.
