Hi I just got a new baby turtle and I was curious as to if ayone knew wether a turtle prefers a nice humid environment or a dryer one. Since i\'m in Alaska it\'s pretty dry so I was wondering it I should mist it\'s tank as I do with my African Fat-Tailed Gecko
So any clues?

A RES is an aquatic turtle and needs to be in a tank FILLED with water, not misted. It also needs a basking area to get out onto to dry off - with a uvb bulb above the basking area. You also will need a filter and a heater to keep the water from getting too cold.

Oh, thank goodness! I totally misunderstood :) If it is aquatic, it already is going to be humid so no worries.
