Shell bites

Post by Jak1989 » Mon Nov 20, 2017 12:30 pm

I've just noticed that one of my musk turtles has recently been bit by one of her tank mates, they have lived together for 7 years and have never had any problems. Have yous any tips on the best course of treatment?

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?
