Is it okay to pet a turtle?

:turtle: Thinking about bringing a turtle into my home! I’m wondering, is it okay to have a pet turtle? I’m interested in their care needs and whether they’re suitable companions. Could anyone share insights on how to care for a turtle effectively and create a thriving environment for them at home?

No, it is not ok to a turtle, simply because turtles carry salmonela which is harmful to babies.

In our hometown, petting a turtle is considered cultic :thinking:
