Free map turtle (Fort Hood)

Hi I recently rescued a map turtle from my neighbor who was keeping it in less than optimal conditions. I have no room for this little guy. I love her to death but can't provide the proper care. No extra tanks/funds for another mouth to feed right now. If you are interested please PM with your setup and how you plan to care for the new addition to your family. I want to make sure this isn't an impulse buy, and whoever is receiving this turtle knows what they are doing and will properly care for her. I am not asking for a rehoming fee. All I want is to be absolutely sure she is going to a good home. Unfortunately I have no supplies to go with her so you will have to have your own. I would like to see pictures of your current set-up, I'm not going to accept "will be ready soon" habitats. I will be testing your knowledge of this species of aquatic turtle to be ABSOLUTELY POSITIVE you know what you are getting yourself into. It may sound like a lot, but to anyone that has ever had a dog or a cat you will understand. Map turtles live forever. PM with any questions you have. Please give Squirt a good home!

I'd take her but I'm 200 miles away. Poor thing.
