How to tell if ur turt (res) is pregnant

I went out of town for a few weeks and left my 3 turtles with my mom. Before I left they were doing the mating dance. Now one of my turtles has a \"bumpy\" (can\'t think of a word to describe it)shell, and I reemember hearing somewhere that turtles carry thier eggs under their shell. What should I do?

Re: mean turtles

My two youngest are mean too! They always try to bite me. I guess I\'ll try handling them more. My oldest is very sweet.

Can RES eat other RES?

I asked the guy at the pet store about putting my two younger turtles back in the same tank with my old turtle, and he told me that the older turtle will eat the babies. I know they didn\'t get along, and the older turtle bit one of the babies, but is this true?

I put them in the tank with my older turtle (the man at the pet store told me it was ok. shame on me for listening to him)I noticed a couple of days later that one of my babies tail\'s was missing. Because I had just gotten them, I figured he was like that when I got him,...

my turtle ate a little too much a few days ago, and since I haven\'t seen that she\'s had a bowel movement. I\'m also concerned that she may have eaten a rock today. I feed her regularly so I\'m not sure what to do about her...Please advise

Re: we need to find a good home...

I\'m in college now and I keep my turtles here with me. It really depends on their size though, because I know at my school we\'re not supposed to have animals, but I read somewhere that because they\'re so small they\'re technically considered fish...just an idea.

Re: my turtles sick

I believe your turtle has soft shell disease. Do you have a lighiting source in your tank? If not it is very important that you get one. This may aid your turtle in recovery.

Re: Help I need some turtle names

I named mine Michealangelo and Donnatello (mickey and Donnie for short)...after the teenage mutant ninja turtle, so i guess it wasn\'t that original, but i just wanted to offer all four names as a suggestion (Michaelangelo, Donatello, Leonardo, and Raphael)

Should I go ahead and take her to a vet, or is it something that will go away on its own? Also, I don\'t think my ...

Re: My Turtle died! What about the other one?

i\'m unsure of what you mean by \"plastron\"...also, i have changed them in to a larger tank, so the filter should not be a problem anymore. He is being very active ow, infact he ate the last goldfish today...i haven\'t seen him yawn today, but i\'ll keep a look out...thanks = )

Thanks! I think Donny may have gotten stuck under the filter. Immediately following the incident Mickey was very depressed. He barely swam, he ate pretty well, but he wouldn\'t bask and he got really scary. Now he\'s back to pretty much him old self. He\'s still a little scary though. I have noticed...

In October I bought two baby res (Donnie and Mickey) Recently Donnie passed away. I\'m not sure of the cause, but he was under the filter (where he played sometimes) Mickey has been very depressed, but I think he is coming around. I noticed that the bottom of Mickey\'s shell looks purplish and that ...
