we just purchased 2 RES, they are about 2in in size, from what i understand it is illegal to sell them under 4in in length, is this true? they are not eating at all. i read this can be due to stress. they were shipped dry to Kenton, OH, they were apparently \"farmed\" and were tested for salmanilla? how do we know? should we get them tested at our vet? we have a 8 year old son, also a cat and dog we adore, can it make them sick too? i am scared, jed and fred have already become apart of our family, what can i do to make sure they do not get sick? HELP!!!
new owner,

What do YOU do to make sure you don\'t get sick? Take your RES to the vet.
And yes, it\'s true about the 4 inch thing (in most places anyways).

Just use simple hygiene procedures when dealing with the turtles. Make sure who ever needs to go into the tank washes their hands before AND after. I keep snakes and turtles, so I make sure I wash my hands ALL the time
