Mark Ballas Shares His Pet Passion With Fans, His Break From ABC’s ‘DWTS’ Is Filled With Caring For His New Pets, Highlight Hollywood News

What does dancing coach Mark Ballas do on his down-time from ABC’s “Dancing With The Stars?” Like most people, he has pets that keep him occupied, and Mark has said he’s spending some rest and relaxation time this summer at home.  

The “Dancing with the Stars” pro, who was crowned runner-up with partner Katherine Jenkins last season, brought home two new pets after a shopping excursion with a friend.
“At the Turtle store today,” he Tweeted Thursday. “New tank and 2 new Turtles.”

Ballas seems to have a passion for raising turtles. His new reptiles have a pal in Little Foot, another turtle he got for his birthday in May.  “Best gift ever from @Tiffanydunn #iliketurtles,” he Tweeted last month, with a photo of his new addition.
