yay congrats u got one of the cutest turtles ever:)

first of all how shallow is the water? does it cover him completely? turtles can\'t eat outside bcz they don\'t have saliva to swallow..second thing is do u have a heater, uv light, basking area...?

third thing is,,don\'t worry if he/she didn\'t respond to u at the beginning..he\'s still a baby and that\'s very normal to new turtles especially hatchlings..and don\'t worry if he doesn\'t eat for the first week or so,,he\'ll finally starve and eat

welcome to the board both of u:)
