I was wondering if there were certain websites that you all know of that aren\'t good for buying turtles. I have seen the links of recommended places. I bought a turtle from a place that I thought was reputable but it has been drama ever since. Most recently the turtle died. Can anyone recommend a good place to buy a turtle?? Mine was a box turlte and I would like to get another. Thanks

is there anyway you can get one in a petstore around where you live. i know the reason you probably got one online in the first place is because you can\'t, but i\'d really really try to stick to a place where you can actual visit and observed where these turtles are raised, etc.

Here\'s a tip: don\'t buy it from prehistoricpets.com. I\'ve been to their store and they are HORRIBLE!!!

really? That is interesting because that is where I got my turtle too. Can u tell me what forum you may have read that in? They actually shipped her in the dead of winter with 2-day delivery. Give me a break!!

And no, I can\'t get a turtle from a local store. I wish.

Thanks
