Turtle Leash fit snug enough so that the turtle can roam all day without worry. You can switch the leash between your turtle's without having to worry if it's too tight or too lose =)

 


You Will Need...


-1 Rubber glove, like the yellow gloves you wear when washing dishes.

- String, leash, thin robe, twine, or shoe laces, whatever you have.

-Some scissors or wire cutters, depending on what type of leash material you use.

 


Cut It

Grab your rubber glove, and cut the end of the cuff off. Also get your leash material and cut it to the appropriate length to fit your personal needs.

 


Build It

Tie the leash material onto the cuff of the glove, and if you wish, at the other end of the leash material make a handle.

 


Try It Out
Slide it carefully over the turtle's shell, and make sure it is in a place where the turtle's feet won't get snagged on the cuff of the glove as they walk.

 


Warning!

This is ONLY for SOME OF THE TIME!
Don't leave the leash on them when you're not around, don't pick it up above the ground with the leash, and don't tie them to a tree like a dog.
It's mean and the turtle could get hurt or loose!
Use common since people!

 


A Fun Activity: The Balloon!

Also Helps You To Not Lose Sight Of Your Turtle!

Now that you have a safe way to attach string to your turtle's shell, you can get very creative! Like tie a balloon at the end of the string. If you're letting your turtle roam the yard for some exercise, this aids in giving a quick glance to easily locate the turtle.

But always remember! Leaving a turtle outside of its pen unsupervised is a ticket for trouble very fast.

Please never leave your turtle alone to roam your yard unprotected!
