Bites, Cuts, Burns and Scratches If your turtle has encountered any of these, then, most times, you need to check things out in your set up to make some changes. Submersible heaters without guards are notorious for burning turtles who like to sit on them or under them. Being allowed to get too clos...

Only had the turtle for a few hours so no interaction as yet, but due to the fact he is only a hatchling we wont be encouraging any interaction.

OK I know I am only a newbie but I was told when I was arranging transport of my RES, never ever travel them in water, as they can flip over and drown, I was told the best option was to travel them on a moist but not wet towel, good luck :)
