if u have anything to add to ur post u can edit it especially when no one answers instead of posting that much stuff in here.

for ur Q, salmonella exists in turtles the same way it does in any other animal. if u wash ur hands well after holding them there's nothing to worry about

Putting a turtle in the mouth is only a small part of why the law was passed. Many children died from salmonella poisoning and most was due to the fact that they never washed after handling the turtles or their habitats. This is a huge reason why I really discourage letting them wander about your home. As they wander they can leave traces of the bacteria on any surface they touch. Including your bathtub. So sanitize all areas where your turtle has been and wash, wash, wash after touching them.

Turtles under 4" are to be sold only for educational or exibit purposes but many pet stores like to skirt around that issue.

My son was five when we got our turtle and he has handled her since the first day. It is my responsibility as his mom to make sure he washes his hands properly before and after handling her. He's never whined about it either :P (great kid!) Also, we only take her out of the tank when it's warm enough to take her outside, because of the same reason Deesy stated, the bacteria could end up all over the house.... ummmm ick! :lol: We've had absolutely no problems at all with it in the last year that we've had Snappy so I think you just have to be responsible about dealing with it. :lol:

Exactly. :lol: When you approach the issue responsibly then there is no problem.

Sunny, not talking about the issue isn't a good solution to the problem. Only by educating people can the risks be eliminated.

OMG!!, Deesy, who's that adorable kid-o on your avatar?!

Oh, and I wasn't trying to be rude, sunny41, just trying to help... It's always a good idea to talk about things... makes it easier when it comes time for others to deal with the same issues! :P

when i have emerald and diamond i di not even put them in the bath tun well when diamond and i did not know she was sick(it kinda hard to tell when they are sick) and then i notice when i look at a turtle with the fungus then i took emerald out to lok at her hand at that look like it so i knew she had fugus an di did put emerald in the bathroom but in a container and put medication on her/he.so the bacrteria could be in my room and the bathtubs.
what a loophole that a pet store use?

Man, they really grow up fast don't they? It's kinda sad really! I tried to tell my son the other day to try not to grow up too fast, that no matter what he thinks, being a grown up is totally over-rated!! I think he'll believe me till he's about 12 or 13!! After that, he'll be a know-it-all, I'm sure! I know I was! :P

can't blame them, this is one of the toughest centuries to live in and many grown ups can't survive so what about little helpless kids..
