Re: White flakey -like thing on shell?

Hey,
won\'t the salt hurt the turtles?? That is not natural to their habitat.
Turtles do shed their scutes though
It\'s nothing to worry about ...they\'ll come off on their own

Re: MY DAD WON\'T LET ME GET A TURTLE!?

Hello, I\'m not going to try to dis your age...but here\'s what i\'m thinking of this whole situation. I would never give a turtle to any child. It\'s WAY too much responsibility...even if I realized how much it was going to be..I might have waited a few years before I decided to get them. They may ...

Re: floating basking area

the floating basking areas are a good idea, but i just find it\'s easier for them to get up if there is a slope. we have a 55 gallon tank which is filled right to the top and built attachments out of fiberglass to bring their basking area up higher. This way they get plenty of swimming room.

Re: RES Hatchlings?

You could start with a simple 10 gallon tank.....and with something that they can crawl out of..make sure it\'s not too difficult.
You don\'t have to worry about space right yet til....maybe a year, depends on how fast they grow.
