Peanut The Turtle

Peanut, a red-eared slider turtle, is Missouri's No MOre Trash! mascot. She was found with a discarded plastic six-pack holder around her shell when she was young and small. The piece of litter had been around her shell for about four years and her shell had grown around it. The plastic was removed and Peanut is doing well. Most animals are not so lucky when it comes to litter. Learn more at
