    Color Enhancing

    I bought this product the other day and have started to feed it to my Painted Turtle as well as my Box Turtle. It promises to induce color due to the krill and a few other high color ingredients. Has anyone ever used this before? Does it work...

    Redfoots at Petco

    There are 2 redfoots at my local Petco. They are just over 4 inches. They are very colorful and have full yellow heads. They have been there for so long that their price has dropped to $109.00. Anyone interested?

    Hermit Crabs

    So I'm going to try to keep 2 hermit crabs in with my tortoise. Hopefully they will clean the enclosure of any food Isaac has dropped, poop, and any other organic material that could mold or stink up over time. I know Isaac is a sulcata but his enclosure is basically a redfoot or box turtle...

    Turtles & Tortoises inc. Anyone know anything about this site? It says they breed with wild caught specimens, and that new wild caught specimens are brought in every year. Sounded fishy. Also the picture of their breeding room on the main page looks like a factory. I could...

    When to put down an animal...

    Ok so Ive seen some pretty gruesome things happen to turtles. Some from this forum and some online elsewhere. I have also seen almost all of them pull through. Reptiles can recover from horrific wounds. I was on another forum and a user posted this pic (link below.) A mouse bit it and tore...

    Look what I found...

    Me and a friend were walking along the C&O and I caught a juvenile snapping turtle. He looks really healthy but it has a leech in its mouth. There was no way I could get it out. It wasn't very happy about all of this though.

    New Growth (Sulcata)

    I made a couple changes and it seems to have worked in just a few days. I increased the moisture in the substrate to create more humidity. I feed Isaac more greens and less Mazuri. Im not saying Mazuri is bad, its fantastic, but too much I think means too much protein for a sulcata. I also...

    Killing Algae

    Most every time I clean my turtle tanks I do it because of algae. I heard you can add a little salt and it will kill off the algae and not harm the turtle. Only animals that breathe with gills can be harmed. Is this true? If so it would be a lifesaver.
