Fun Fact Friday #3: The one with the turtles

Fun Fact Friday - The one with the turtles

What kind of animals would you expect living wild and free in downtown Stuttgart? Birds, sure. Mice and – oh well –  rats? Definitely. Squirrels? Yes, of course. But reptiles? No way! Well, you will be astonished…

Feuerseeplatz in Stuttgart-West is a beautiful place. The old church Johanneskirche looks like a miniature version of Notre Dame in Paris and the stairs invite you to sit down and relax for a while. But have you ever observed the water and the shore more closely?

Fun Fact: This tiny lake is not only home of some (very big!) fish but also of turtles! You can see them swimming around in there and on a warm day they lay outside the lake to soak up some sun! 🙂 I guess they used to be pets but their owners must have set them free at some point…
