Sure if I get replacement terrapins and these are still here then mine can be re homed.

As a thought if there are any near you need re homing u could get them
And then I could take it of you and u re home mine

I live in South Wales and have travelled to Yeovil and Berkshire to get rehomes and the rehome that I gave away went down the road to Carmarthenshire which is about how it normally works. If there were any rehomes I could collect enroute to you I would willingly do that, no problem.
It is surprising how often rehomes come up, just be patient.

Of all the species I have found that River cooters and False Maps have the best chances of surviving.
Common musks will survive with no problem.

Where in Somerset are you?

Behind langport through to Wells is you will find the Somerset Levels.
Provided you dont stray onto Nature Reserves the area is just littered with small waterways.

Even the Taunton canal has some great weed.

I live in Yeovil by wetlands social club.

I travel with work but wouldn't want a turtle to be out of water for a hole day in my van otherwise would of been ideal

Providing it's not a hot day, and you pop it in a box (with air holes of course!) with some damp moss to burrow into, then they'd be quite happy and more than likely go to sleep in the dark ~thmbu
