i cant cut them because they pull their foot away and i dont wanna hold it to break their lil legs and they fite with me just picking them off.. they claw my fingers and although it dont break the skin.. it leaves my hands red... the female is pretty tame but the male is a tiger.. he kicks and straches and snaps... that\'s why i call them IKE and Tina... cause during matting he was biting the heck out the females leg and finally one nite i saw her snap back at him and he swam away and aint touch her for so long.. i felt soo impowered for her!

What I do is just let them walk on my driveway, the cement rubs againts the claws and they get shorter.

Hi,
I read your posts & I don\'t think that you would should try to clip the nails yourself. In nature you don\'t see turtles with clipped nails. But if it really bothers you, try taking them to a vet, they will know what to do.
