Do I need to take my turtle out of his cage every day and let him run around? I do let him run on the driveway in the evening when it isn\'t so hot, and sometimes I put him on the carpet inside. Do I need to do anything special about exercise? Any advice will be appreciated! :) ???

Although some people do take their turtles out for exercise, if you have a tank that\'s large enough (10 gallons of tank per inch of shell length) and enough water in it for him to swim in, he doesn\'t really need to be \"exercised.\" (Now that summer is coming, on warm, 80F+ days, however, I do take my turtle outside to explore (always supervised) occasionally, but this is more for him to get some unfiltered sunlight than for exercise.)
