I found this little red-eared slider in my cousin's back yard today. Gold dollar and 100 yen for size comparison.

What should I do now? Red eared sliders are good pet turtles, but they are far from being hearty enough for this environment. He looks as if he is a hatchling. I remember trying to do this with a snapper in biology class but he died (for a backasswards lesson on darwinism).

I don't want to let him go wild. Little bro would be bird food right quick. I'm thinking of contacting my old science teacher, since I can give him for educational purposes, and he's got a few other sliders.

I honestly have no idea: there's no need to be cruel with Ton-chan...
Better google a lot to find how is it better, either to keep it as a pet, or to release it at a good place.

This amazes me.

There are little ass turtles like that. And then you have the big, lumbering Galapagos motherfuckers. And every size in between. Nature really is pretty damn amazing.

I don't know anything about turtles so I don't know how much of a maintenance he'd be but I'd consider keeping it if you want a pet. Though pets can cost a fair amount in food and upkeep they make up for it in being a good companion, although a turtle seems less companion-ey than something like a dog or cat would.
