Mark Ballas is slowing things down this summer – with his turtles!

The Dancing with the Stars pro, who was crowned runner-up with partner Katherine Jenkins last week, 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 turtle power. 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.
