I know he isn't a fish...but I felt it necessary to put this here.
For you all who didn't know Derby, he was by Box Turtle that I saved from a lawn mower 6 years ago when I lived in Florida.
He would follow me around my apartment. I'd take him on "walks" outside in the front yard. He enjoyed eating fresh caught worms after it rained. He was a happy little turtle.
Last night me and my boyfriend found him upside-down under his heat lamp. His shell was scalding hot, and he couldn't have been there more than an hour.
I tried to cool him down under cold water, but after 10 min. he was still unresponsive.
We buried him under the tree outside my bedroom window, which blooms gorgeous cherry blossoms in the spring.
Rip little turtle. You will be missed. :(
