Hi All, not been on here for awhile, hope your all okay, and your terrapins are good.. We are at crisis point down here on the Isle of Wight..We are unable to take in anymore terrapins, and no rescue centre's over here will take them, they refer people to us..Last week we turned down 3 sliders, there are 8 trying to be sold on varies local sites, which no doubt soon be dumped somewhere, we could not say no to one yesterday as she's a baby map and poorly. The pet shops here are a nightmare, they told the lady it was a razorback and the care for it was the same as fish.The Rspca are not much better, the last rescue one with got through them had been kept in a hamster cage, it was a full grown ybs and had bad sores on its feet from climbing up the bars..I just don't know what to do with this situation, as are two ponds are full, and there is no spare money to build anymore at the moment..I am hoping that there are some members on here that may have friends or relatives with ponds or large tanks near to us that can take some in. ~cnf-dunno
