Re: Weird Behavior

She used to kind of swim to one side (almost in a circle) and it scared me, but she has not done that in a long time. She looks perfectly healthy. I\'m just worried about the bubble thing. She had never done this before, but has done it a noticeable amount in the last two months. I don\'t know if it...

Weird Behavior

I don\'t really know how to explain this, but a lot of times my RES will kind of cough or something and a lot of bubbles come out. When this happens, it\'s kind of like the air coming out pushes her back some. She does it often and I don\'t know if something is wrong with her. Have any of you experi...

Re: Our turtle is some where in our house

Did you guys ever find your turtles? That was such a sad story about the turtle that died in the closet. One time my turtle took off and I was freaking out. I had my brother come and help me look for her and finally found her under the couch. I guess she went under there because it was dark. It was ...
