AZ Game and Fish concerned 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' will create turtle-buying
TUCSON (KGUN9-TV -- If your child watched 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' and fell in love with its reptile stars, think twice before you bring a real one into your home. Biologists at Arizona Game and Fish are worried that many moviegoers will go out and buy turtles as pets-- not realizing how much care they need. They say every year hundreds of pet turtles are released into ponds when owners no longer want them. A lot of people buy the turtles not realizing how big they will eventually grow. Game and Fish encourages anyone to research the turtles first before buying them.
