    Outdoor Box Turtle Enclosure

    Thanks all for the compliments! I will definitely continue posting pics. The measurements for each area are about 9 by 12 foot. And the waterfall is just a pond liner and rocks really. It was my first try making a pond so I'm pretty happy with the results.

    Outdoor Box Turtle Enclosure

    I actually plan to cover the whole thing. My dogs are constantly in and out of it now not to mention the raccoons, opossums, foxes, birds and whatever else might find my turtles appetizing.

    Outdoor Box Turtle Enclosure

    I started this last year but never did finish it. Well I've been working hard trying to get it done in time for them to go outside full time when it's warm enough. It's not quite finished yet, I still have some work with the walls and I want to plant it up pretty good. But here are some pictures...

    should I be concerned?

    Is she pacing the enclosure also? She could be trying to find a nesting spot, it's that time of year. I don't know if you have a male with her or not but mine climb over everything (including other turtles) pacing the enclosure frantically.

    I was using tap water. Should I be using purified? And I did scrub everything down. It did have quite a bit of build up on it, so maybe that was what went wrong.

    I bought a Reptifogger about a month and a half ago and it stopped working. Where the actual fog it sprays out mostly water droplets, not enough fog to come out of the tube. Has anyone had this problem? Is there some kind of general maintenance I failed to do? So annoyed since they cost so much...

    Recently my male mounted my female and while he was biting at her she clamped down on his bottom jaw and held tight. About a half hour later she let go. I left them alone because I didn't really know what else to do. It was pretty scary though.

    When my iguana used to get out he would get into the closet and hang in between the shirts on the hangers. If you haven't checked yet go through all your closets. Best of luck.

    Vitamin A Injection, of course went wrong

    Just curious for future vet visits, is there any alternative to a vitamin a injection? My vet gave my RES one once, and I didnt have any problems with it but can you get the vitamin a into them some other way without the risk of overdose?
