I went to the pet shop to get a mini turtle. I was with my friend Anthony.
The owner of the shop showed us a bowl of turtle eggs that we could choose from. The eggs were a littler smaller than marbles and brightly colored.
I picked the blue one.
The owner explained that the egg will hatch by the heat of my hand. I wondered why he didn’t keep the eggs in a cooler area if that were the case.
The egg hatched in my hand, but it wasn’t a turtle. It was a lizard.
He was small and was running everywhere- I kept losing him.
He couldn’t talk, but I was able to communicate with him through thought.
The lizard explained to me that he was a black tail lizard due to his black tail. The rest of him was green.
I asked him if that meant if he pulled his tail off it would grow back.
He said “yes” and demonstrated.
I showed him his new home (a tank with water, grass (with other plants) and shelter. It was nicely decorated).
I tried to get the lizard to stay in the tank and go to sleep so I could take him home, but he kept running out of the tank.
I thought he could use a friend, so I got another egg. This time it hatched into a turtle (but I wasn’t able to communicate with the turtle like I could with the lizard).
I put the turtle in the tank and he seemed happy.
The lizard continued to run around everywhere.
Anthony was singing and it started to annoy me.
