hopefully he'll decide our pond is a good new home for him and he'll get big & fat on the bounty of tadpoles and i'll get to watch him grow up.. this little critter is too cute.. ah, my hubby is as much of a softy for critters as i am..

At this size they are still sweet - maybe your finger will survive when bitten. BUT I would have done the same and rescued it.
My daughter told me, at University they have "Margarete". She is living in a aquarium, but once Margerete spent a summer in a small artificial pond in front of the building. One day she had bitten a hole into the plastic sheet on the bottom of the pond and flooded the subway. Nice turtels - I love them! joy

So cool. I've heard their bite is very painful.
