Why do turtles Prolapse? I had NO idea what that even was until I read it on this website. I have had a box turtle for about one month and have seen it prolapse at least 4 or 5 times now. I work all day so of course I don\'t know how often she does it when I\'m gone. I\'ve read online here that if it happens a lot that I should get the help of a vet. But I hoped someone could let me know why turtles do this and if it\'s painful. She usually does it in the water and when I come close enough she stops and it goes back in. What should I do? Can anyone please offer advice? Is there anyway to stop it? Also, how often should we feed the turtle? And how much (live and vegetation)? I\'d appreciate your help. Thanks!
