    If the water looks undisturbed (like they haven't been to it), you better set them in it (one at a time) and let them soak. A stressed new box turtle will often ignore its needs and hide, to it's own detriment. If you don't have a digital scale that measures in grams, get one. It will tell...

    Fish Bait Worms Okay?

    I imagine your local bait shops and pet stores probably get their worms from the same places. If you aren't able to find or produce your own consistantly, store bought worms are certainly better than no worms!

    Box Turtle

    I'm with emysemys 100%. Absolutely confident the white "j" is dead bone an will flake off. The rest of the discolored area is where it already has. Don't take it to the vet for that. Why would a vet be an expert on paint anyway?

    What is this!?

    HELP! turtle sleeping all the time, not moving

    Hasn't anybody asked for pics yet? I would like to see how this 3 year old looks. Is she really 3, are her eyes shut now, any nasal discharge? Has she eaten anything yet? Pics will help immensely. Steve[hr] If turtles get sick, they often respond by inducing a fever. They cook in the...
