Hello:

I have two male Red Ear Sliders and their nails are extremely long. I am afraid that they are going to claw their own eyes out one day. Does anyone know if it is safe to cut their nails and if yes, with what? If not, what do I do about this?

i wouldn\'t cut their nails. i really wouldn\'t worry about it. if one HAPPENS to get the other one in the eye, you can treat it.

i just wouldn\'t want to risk cutting their nails down.
