Strollercat is so yesterday; say hello to Trainturtle

Trainturtle

MBCR, which runs the T's commuter trains, tweets somebody left a turtle on one of its trains now and that it's now looking for an aquarium or school to take him in. And no, wise guy, they're not going to adopt him as a mascot.

H/t Kat Hasenauer for coming up with his/her name.

Don't worry little shelled one, help is on the way!

That looks like a healthy, well-cared for Red Eared Slider. This is a pet that was likely on a trip to a vet or something similar as they need water temps over 70F for good health.

Just emailed turtlehomes.org to see if anyone can help.

Thats to good for them

Way to good for them. I say stick them outside of JFK station right in view of the highway.

Oh forgot to add earlier you can also tweet @ARLBostonRescue in an emergency.

Turtle was intentionally abandoned

Based on a Twitter interaction between MBCR and a rider, the turtle was intentionally left by a mother and daughter who were heading to the airport. They couldn't bring the turtle so they were trying to give it away to anyone who would take it. I don't know if they gave up and left it on the train, or if they gave it to someone who then left it on the train.
