It's a beautiful turtle! It should be painted.

He may not be amused... but he posed nicely for the picture!

Did you send him to the turtle wash? He's so clean! Our "sliders" are all covered in green slime. Beautiful turtle shot.

FC, he was remarkably clean except for the two leeches he had attached to his carapace. He also had the oddest iridescence to his shell -- the camera couldn't capture it.

who paionted him with lovely iridescent gloss that only your eye could see?

SQMojo, I'm pretty sure the water sprites did it -- the wood nymphs don't like to get in the water. ;)
