Re: How can I take my little one outside??

You can make the water as deep as it can go as long as he has a basking area...and for outside you could buy a 12$ kiddie pool...and just put a rock in for a basking area!..just i thought! good luck :)

Re: baby RES

They say you can only tell for sure what the gender is when the turtle is 5 years old. But you should notice if its a boy...a concave belly (so it caves in) and very long nails. If its a girl its belly should be flat and shorter nails! Now you can always guess what sex your turtle is now.. (i have) ...

I\'m not completly sure but i think if the eggs have been in the water..they have drown and will not hatch...you have to have an area where your turtle can lay the eggs on land..so don\'t take my word for it but that is what i know about it...you might wanna go somewhere and do more reading about it!

The rule is fill the tank to the amount of the width of your turtle. But My turtles when i got them were 1 inch...and i put them in a 40 gal tank and fill it up to the top! With of course a basking area! Turtle will only drown if they flip over and can\'t get back up..or if they get stuck some where...

I agree with you on the smell part..i don\'t think its as much they can taste as that they can smell very well..because when i give them pellets they won\'t eat them now unless i put them in the same container as the shrimp!
