Down To The Wire

Posted by LLDG in Frankie Tortoise Tails, 09 April 2014 - - - - - - · 61 views

Everywhere it's greening-up. Temperatures are warm so grass is on an all out burst of spring growth that says, finely, it's spring. Thank the shelled god. I don't know if I can take it anymore.

Oh, it's green all up and down our street but not yet in Frankie's yard. Everyday, every single day, I have to take Frankie on "grazing walks" through our neighbo...

Scared turtle!

Posted by belle<3turtle in belle<3turtle's Blog, 01 December 2013 - * * * * * · 430 views

I had just gotten a yellow belly slider 2 weeks ago. He is VERY scared of me! But he loves basking so much that he just stares at me when he's basking. [:roll] I can't even hand feed him! When I get close to my yellow belly slider he freaks out. My other turtles aren't as scared, but they don't trust me.. Any advice on shy turtles, trying to be friends wi...

My turtle recently had a growth of some sort on it's neck. I thought it might have gotten scratched in it's enclosure, but then the growth got bigger. I've been checking it everyday and it stopped growing. Tonight I checked on it and the growth was starting to get a little white around the base of it. About an hour later the growth had come out and the pa...

New Turtle Help

New Turtle Help       I recently found a dehydrated box turtle that had been hit by a car in the middle of the road. Rocki (the turtle) is fine and wasn't injured by the car.     However, I have never owned a turtle before, and I feel the need to be cautious about how I treat her. I would hate for her to become ill due to my inexperience.   ...


Unusually Overactive

I have owned a Florida Cooter for nearly 10 years now and have had minor problems. Just recently he has become very overactive and has been doing things such as climbing the glass in his tank and splashing water around like crazy! I acquired scooter when I was young and didn't have much knowledge on turtles. He lives in a 75 gallon tank that he got for hi...

We had some pretty bad floods here, and finally its spring (worm season!). My little three toed boxie, Mack, just adores worms, but I never seem to dig in the right spot. So when I came home today I saw 8 small worms in the driveway. So, I set out to the 'lake' that just formed at the end of our street. All along the curd, many, MANY worms...

I have two box turtles and they both need to start living outside. I live in Arizona so it is slowly cooling down. I made an outside enclosure for them with just natural dirt. It had a lot of rocks in it and I did my best to get them out. I talked to a friend of mine who said to get some mulch because one of the box turtles was eating the rocks. I got...


Creating an in tank dry area

Posted by Eric Purtee in Eric Purtee's Blog, 03 October 2012 - - - - - - · 1,009 views

I want to use plexi glass to wall off about 1/4 of a 135 gallon tank. Has any one ever done this before and if so do you have any tips?

I was thinking that the wall would go about 3/4 of the way up the tank or a little bit more. I would have a shelf built into the front of it that would either have a ramp built into it or I could use the shelf to hold a...
