    No longer eating!

    None of the RES I ever owned ate greens. They would spit them out. I wouldn't worry to much the pellet diet is pretty varied. Lots of people come into my store buying large amounts of feeder gold fish because that's all their turtles will eat but it's not healthy. Goldfish are fatty. I always...

    Well I just got home from job #1 a bit ago. Go in the reptile room to dig her up and she's sitting on her little basking platform. I guess she faked me out. Lol I made her food and put her in the bowl and the log over top but she came out the other side, so I moved her to her lil pool and she...

    Because she is a hatchling I really didn't wanna chance it. Hopefully I can get her eating again. She was a very enthusiastic eater before all this.

    Thanks. I usually soak her outside of the tank, although she does have a saucer of water. I didn't want her to hibernate but wasn't sure if I could stop it once it started.

    Despite my efforts my EBT hatchling has buried herself and not surfaced for a few days. Her tank is warm, it ranges from 70-80F depending on the time of day. I do not use a heat lamp on her tank, just a UVB strip for 4 hours a day. The room she is kept in gets very warm when we turn the heat on...

    Suggests please on my habitat?

    Wow great snag! What exactly is it used for (well before you made it a hide)? Is it just a plastic plant pot?

    Purple face

    It's the first time I've given it to them. My russian went absolutely insane over it. Not one bit was left behind! I have a small pumpkin/gourd, which I heard is also a fave, so I'm going to offer this week. It's so nice when you find something they really enjoy, especially with my babies, makes...

    This poor russian looks so sad. His eyes just don't look healthy. It's a shame there's not better information out there.

    Best type of calcium powder ?

    I've always used this brand for all of my reptiles. I think it cost a little more than some of the other brands but it's what my father (who has collected and bred reptiles his whole life) uses. We use a different brand at the pet store I work at and I've noticed if gets kind of clumpy and...

    No longer eating!

    Despite not being fond of RES I try to take excellent care of this lil guy. He's already had such a rough start. I'm really routing for him to find a great home.

    No longer eating!

    Someone left him outside of the pet store I work nights at. Right in front of the door on a chilly night. Along with a note from a child saying they can't care for it anymore. Since it's so small we would never except it at the pet store and can't because we could get fined. So I am caring for...
