Post any questions you have about a turtle outdoor setup here. Or if you have a link to your outdoor setup picture we would love to see it.

help! can a turtle freeze and come back. I know that turles live outside in cold weather all year. We have a water turtle in an outdoor tank and the power went out over night and the tank froze. Can a turtle survive this? Is there hope that he can come back? We feel so horrible about the whole thing. Please let us know asap

I heard of this happening before. I am pretty sure the turtle can only survive if you chizzle him out of the ice, take him inside and gradually melt away the ice around him by placing him in a tank with cold water(so he does not go into shock).
If you do this the turtle might survive. I would do it as soon as possible though. This is just an assumption on my part so maybe someone will know more about this other than me. Ya know someone more experienced in the matter.
Good Luck:)

What kind of turtle do you have and how old is it?
