I have a few assorted questions about my RES turtle:

1.If I am gone for 2 days or so, and no one comes to feed my turtle, when I get back, should I feed it more than usual?

2.The scutes on the back of my turtle\'s shell are sort of flimsy when they are wet. Is this calcium deprovation?

3. Are there any other calcium supplements besides cuttlebone?

4.How do you supplement calcium?

5.Where can you get aquatic plants that your turtle can eat?

If you have any answers, please post them! :)

this is about you being gone for two days:

i would feed them just before you leave (not too much) and buy a bunch of feeder fish for them to munch on when you are gone.
(like goldfish, guppies or minnows)

You can get aquatic plants at some Petsmarts and (I\'ve heard) Petco. I prefer to get them at gardening stores that sell supplies for outdoor ponds. Some people also order them on-line.
