Hey just wanted to say hello to all of you and I just bought 4 baby Eastern Painted Turtles online, they are going to be shipped to me in Oregon from Florida. These turtles are going to live in my backyard pond (pretty large}, but they wont be able to escape, they will have plenty of rocks to sit on though. But I have read that they like mud and silt in the water, but I have none of that, just a rocky bottom, will that effect them in a bad way? Will they be ok with the Oregon weather? I talked to the people we bought from, and they said they would be fine. Anything else I should know about my new eastern painted babies, please let me know. Thanks so much everyone for your time!
