Re: 1st time turtle owner with baby turtle

those so called \"pet professionals\" in the petstores are really dumb and usually don\'t know anything.

dont trust them with your pet\'s life.

Re: sleeping

I LEAVE MY UVB ON DURING THE DAY 7 AM TO 6PM

AND BASKING LAMP (NIGHT BULB) IN THE NITE AFTER 12AM
BECAUSE I THOUGHT THE REASON WE HAVE THE HEAT LAMPS IS SO THEY ARE NOT TOO COLD LATE IN THE NITE

ISNT TAHT THE PURPOSE?

SO WE SHOULD LEAVE ANY LIGHT ON DURING THE NITE?

rubbing eye lids

my baby RES have trouble opening its eye.

it is trying very hard to open its eyes, and when that fails, it scratches and rubs its against its own eye lids, trying to pry them open.

It is always like that, seems like the eyelids are stuck together...

what happened?
