My two turtles, Michaelangelo and Leonardo, are quickly growing to the size of a dinner plate. When I bought them in college, they were the no bigger than a quarter, and they were swimming around with hundreds of other little guys in a mall aquarium. I felt sorry for them, and the salesman said they wouldn’t grow bigger than my hand. I quickly discovered his lie as soon as I walked into PetSmart with the little creatures and heard gasps from the associates. “You know how big they get, right?” Well, I do now.
