Hey everyone! I live in northern New Mexico, Raton to be exact. Yesterday I was playing with a little boy exploring a small mostly dried up pond by my house and while digging in the mud we found two turtles they are about the size of a fifty cent piece mostly just dark no color to them. I would like to know if anyone knows what type they might be and any information about what they eat and how they live so I could keep them. It is really dry here and I don\'t really want them to die.
Thanks alot! Angie

Hi Angie,
You can find care sheets at the top of this page to help you get started with a setup for them. Sometimes turtles take a while before they will eat for you. Some take a few days, some a few weeks. Try meats like cooked chicken, worms shrimp (dried), even crickets.

As for what type they are I have no clue. You can check the turtle species button for pictures of some different types.

Good luck and welcome to the board,

Christy

As for what kind they are they mite be a gopher tortise or a mud turtle...it mite be a gopher tortise that\'s my best guess but you should bring it to a pet store just to make sure. good luck!:)
