Re: new to all of this

He also eats his water neutralizer rock. I think it is made of calcium. Is that safe for him. After he did it the first time I noticed it I fed him after that and he threw up his food. He still ate it but I was worried. I think he is fine now.

dixiee: fly like a jet huh, That is too cute.

Re: help

ALL OF YOU ARE SO NICE!!!!! Thank-you.
I think he is a flordia red belly cooter. I figured that out thanks to the website that STRAYKINGFISHER sent me to. I hope you all still except me even though he is not a RES. I will get some pics so everyone can see my new baby. Thank-you again.

Re: new to all of this

At first he was really scared. I think it is because he was in a new environment so all he did was hide under his floating rock next to his heater. So I thought he was cold that is when I decided I would get him a heat lamp. He started coming out after that just swimming around. Now he is a very ver...
