Re: Shall I go outside?

Southern England tends to have better summers than the rest of us, however it can also have some harsher winters. You kind of have to balance up a cushy, boring life indoors for them, or a much more natural life outside with a little bit of risk. At their age (and presumably size) then they should b...

Re: Basking Area Problem!

Firstly apologies for the delay in replying, the forum has been quiet lately and I've had the living room apart for a few days so no inernet to catch up. Hi, what is your tank setup like in terms of temps, lid / no lid, lighting (timer?), water quantity, and filtration? Also, what are you offering f...

Re: 2 Common Snapping Turtles need new home(s)

Orginal post was from over 8 years ago, and the link says they've been rehomed.

Always nice to see new blood reading through the forum though :)

Re: Shell bites

Do you have any pics? Might be fine to leave it to heal, or if it's worse then it could need treatment. How big is the tank, and how big are the turtles compared to each other?

Re: Yearling Alligator Snapping Turtle

I would say that looks great for a yearling ali snapper, they're decent swimmers when they can be bothered to put the effort in, but prefer to expend as little effort as possible so the log to climb up is ideal :)

Re: Yearling Alligator Snapping Turtle

Sorted your pic, looks great ~thmbu Don't worry about it looking empty, don't forget that in the wild they will live in murky lakes with not much around on the bottom in order to wait and ambush their prey, and the more tank furniture you have, the more places there are to gather mess making cleanin...

Re: Water quality

Hi, So sorry this got missed, I don't know if you're still having water quality issues, but by the sounds of it, it's down to overfeeding and a small filter. Unfortunately terrapins are messy at the best of times so you will need a powerful filter which is recommended for at least 2 to 3 times the a...

Re: Grapes & Cherry Tomatoes!!!!

Hello and welcome to the site and forum, apologies for the slow reply. Any fruits should be fed sparingly, but would be ok in small quantities (like not twice a week). Access to UVB in their enclosure is normally better than them wandering around outside for a bit but if you suspect skin fungus or s...
