Turtle Sellers Spotted at 14th and U On Friday

CIMG0133, originally uploaded by Prince of Petworth.

So last week I received a number of emails about “mini turtles” for sale in Columbia Heights. But nobody took a photo for me… This is why I love twitter! I saw someone’s update said they saw the turtles again. So I begged them to take a photo for me and voila! You can see the small cages on top of the red news box. I asked the twitter user if all three in the photo were selling turtles but she said it was only the guys in white. Pretty wild, yeah? I do fear what happens to the turtles when they grow and are no longer “mini”…

Thanks again to the twitter user for sending the photo!
