I just got a pair of painted turtles, and they were shipped by the pet store in a special box. One of them caught his front leg on the cloth in which they were wrapped for moisture (it was still caught when we opened the box). He seems fine (he\'s swimming, basking and eating), but when he\'s out of water, he walks on his knub instead of the whole leg like the other turtle (although he\'s still pretty quick). Can anything be done about this? Should I take him to the vet? Thanks for your help.
