RIP Schantal :(

January 9, 2011

My beloved Red eared slider turtle has passed away. I’m a little heartbroken. Schantal was a true companion.

Schantal was born in Chinatown, and raised in Brooklyn with her brother. Originally Pauline and Nelson, the two spent their childhoods swimming and eating. Schantal was renamed after the passing of her brother in 2009. Her namesake is a friend from medical school. Human Schantal was on the phone when the tanks broken filter spontaneously started working again. So Pauline was renamed to commemorate the miracle.

Schantal is survived by me, John Montrose, Marcel, and several houseplants. We will miss her dearly.

    I hope Schantal is swimming in a sunny, scummy pond full of lethargic guppies and warm rocks in the sky.
