Re: Disgusting Eating Habits!!

I don\'t know if she is bored, but she is gross!:-) She is in a room that has almost constant activity. She keeps me company (along with my dogs) while I work at home. But she is however alone in her tank. My husband won\'t let me have another one...boo-hoo! Could she be lonely?

Disgusting Eating Habits!!

We have caught our RES eating her poop. She eats it a lot! Does anyone know why she does this? How bad can this be for her? We feed her the recommended things and she eats those things well. But she is still eating her poop! Can anyone help? Thanks!

Missing Nails

I just noticed this morning that my RES is missing her \"toenails\" on her back flipper. She is not bleeding, but she is kind red and raw in that area. What do I do? Please help!

Re: A Couple Of Questions

My turtle was a baby when we got her, she almost never got up to bask in the beginning, we were scared for her. That was 2 years ago, she is now 8 inches. And she will only bask when we are not home or my kids are asleep.

Re: Hypnotized RES

I hope you will look at this. Dani usually stares at her fin in the afternoons. That\'s when I\'ve noticed her. I won\'t breed her though, she was a rescue and I\'m afraid to bring another turtle into the mix.

Hypnotized RES

I have a 2 yr.old RES, she is very large and lives alone. Lately I have been watching her stare at her right fin and become mesmorized by it. Sometimes she won\'t even notice when I walk in the room because she is so fascinated. Any ideas? Is it possible she is lonely?

Lazy Turtle?

We have recently moved our turtle into a bigger home. At first she stayed on her basking rock for about 4 days. We could not get her back in the water, she also refused to eat. Well now, she stays in her water all the time and will only eat if the food floats right up to her. She is also hiding in h...

Re: Stressed RES

Thanks! She finally started eating last night. I almost feel like she was mad at us for changing her home.

Stressed RES

We just upgraded our turtles home so she would have more room to swim. Now, she will not even get into the water. Any suggestions? How long before she will dry out?
