I might know the answer to this one.

Well, since in your previous questions, you have made it clear that you live in Alberta, have an RES, and it is illegal to sell them there. It is illegal to release a captive turtle into the wild, because it may spread (or even create new) diseases. Just tell your parents that, along with it is illegal to sell your RES, so there is no way to get rid of him/her. It's like tricking them into letting you keep your RES. :twisted: . . .But it's true lol :P
