In a small corner of a tranquil pond, a unique kind of jubilation unfolds. A man named Kyle Naegli, known to his online followers as “The Fish Whisperer,” has crafted something extraordinary for his pet turtles. It’s a popsicle, but not just any popsicle. This icy treat contains the essence of joy, and the turtles know it.
These aren’t ordinary turtles, they are Kyle’s aquatic companions. With the very first taste of the specially made popsicle, a feeding frenzy ensues. They leap, swim, and even push each other, all to get a taste of this delightful creation.
Kyle’s popsicles are a brilliant medley of shad, strawberries, blueberries, and pond water. He carefully slices them, places them inside a popsicle mold, fills it with pond water, and freezes it for at least four hours. Then, the magic happens – it’s feeding time.
The moment Kyle takes the popsicles out, the turtles are so eager that they swim out of the water. At first, they approach one at a time, as if testing this new culinary sensation. Then, as if driven by a shared understanding of something wonderful, the rest of the turtles surface to get a bite of their scrumptious treat.
Watching them, it’s hard not to be swept away by their enthusiasm. The turtles, usually known for their slow and deliberate movements, become spirited and energetic, lured in by the tantalizing aroma and taste of the popsicle. Two at a time, three at a time, they come, each wanting a taste of this homemade marvel.
Some of the craziest scenes unfold when the turtles push or shove the others back into the water, competing for a taste of that popsicle. It’s a dance of nature, a testament to the universal joy found in simple pleasures.
Most aquatic turtles are omnivores, and Kyle’s popsicle recipe is a perfect combination of both meat and plants. If you have a pet turtle or are considering getting one, remember that what they eat depends on their type. Boxed turtles, aquatic turtles, and wood turtles each have specific needs.
Adult turtles need to be fed three to five times a week, while baby turtles need to be fed twice a day. You can find a variety of commercial turtle food, but feeding them fresh food like vegetables, fruits, and proteins like worms, snails, and smaller fish is always best.
Kyle’s story is more than a fun internet sensation; it’s a testament to the connection between humans and animals. The popsicles are not merely food but a loving gesture that brings joy to both Kyle and his turtles.
If this story has inspired you, why not consider adding a pet turtle to your family? With proper care and a little creativity, you can create beautiful moments like these. And remember, if you choose to adopt a pet, always opt for “adopt, don’t shop” to support animal welfare.
