Today, I had to convince my 20-year-old boyfriend that not only is his aquatic turtle a reptile, but that it's also cold-blooded and thus can't regulate its own temperature just by going into its shell. He still thinks I'm the stupid one. FML

The one who needs luck here is the turtle. I shudder to think of the living conditions for this poor animal if her boyfriend thought these things. There's likely zero filtration, zero opportunity for thermoregulation and basking, no UVB radiation..... Aquatic turtles are one of the most commonly available pets, yet their requirements are complex and needy. They are one of the most neglected species, right there with iguanas and hermit crabs.
