i was looking on the internet and found out how to reduce shell deformalities with my baby RES. it said to give calcium enriched foods od vitamin D3 tablets/liquid. I need to know what kind of foods that have lots of calcium. I need to know where to buy vitamin D3, can you buy it at a drug store??

too bad we couldnt just feed our RES milk...LOL :)

You need to buy them vitamin supplements (especially for vitamin A, so they don't get puffy eyes) and get a special light that gives off UVB rays (it manipulates the sun so your turtle can bask for heat and vitamin D3). These are expensive, so be prepared to fork out about $20. Also give your turtle a varied diet full of fish and veggies. If yours are babies, they might not eat their greens. Mine pecks at it from time to time, but prefers shrimp... ;)
