I was browsing eBay the other day and ran across paintings painted by a turtle named Koopa, for sale. It also had a the cutest video of him on the page. I then checked out his website and myspace and he is absolutely adorable! Just wanted to share it with other turtle lovers~ (watch the super cute vids)

Yeah somehow having a turtle walk around in paint doesn't seem like the healthiest hobby.

I have an article about Koopa that was in a local paper last year. Koopa's certainly earning his keep. :)

Ive talked to that girl before, her name is kira and shes one of my friends on myspace lol... I saw koopa when I was deciding to get a turtle, and she was telling me about him... she told me the paint is non toxic but she didnt tell me what kinda paint it is.

oh yeah, and I only talked to her ONCE, so Im not gonna ask hehe, it looks like people already asked her about it.. I dont think its safe either.
