used to have a turtle, a little quarter sized one that got about 5 inches before i had to get rid of it because that whole under 3 inches thing. i just dropped it at my lfs, and the manager kept him.
i'd say water turtles are funner, set up a freshwater tank and put a snake necked turtle in it... they're really cool and eat goldfish
