    Yay for Petaluma! First Survival Research Labs moves here & now we’ve got bionic turtles. My home town is an awesome town.

    The furniture slides will wear down over time so they shouldn’t be permanently attached.

    I think a better solution would be to affix 2 little wheels or even steel ball bearings. Who knows, he may even set a land speed record for box turtles with a setup like that.

    Is this the Common Slider Turtle or the Red-Eared Slider Turtle? Or is this one of those fancy Galapagos turtles? (Turtle paradise. No raccoons.) Trachemys EZ-Sliderus-Maximus (Pro).

    Under the Obamacare death panels, all amputees will have to have furniture sliders.

    I remember reading about a dog named Lucky who had 3 legs, one eye and no balls. Indeed.

    We can rebuild him. We can make him better, stronger… We’ll have to get back to you about the faster part, though.
