    Space for adult Burmese star?

    Fisherman hooks 200 pound alligator snapping turtle!

    I wonder how old it is!!!!!!! Can anyone determine the gender from that tail? I know the species has long tails, so it might not be a male?

    Musk Turtle Shell Care Questions

    I agree with Markw84. He’s “da man” for aquatic turtles in my book! I have a canister filter because I also had fish in with my musk turtle, and needed to keep it more clean than for a turtle alone.

    Hey meat eaters and snake fans, what say you?

    Yes! Plenty of gators! They are common road kill when you go down into Cajun country around Houma and Thibodeaux. I’ve visited a gator farm near us- they keep some REALLY big ones for breeding there at the ranch. They also appear in peoples yards after a flood. I forget if it’s the state...

    Best floating pond plants?

    I have used pothos and water lettuce, so I’m afraid I have little additional experience to offer.

    Oh boy!

    Did you give it toYvonne??? But, good thing for me it's gone- I think they're really cute! BUT I still need to get Nelson's 75 gal set up sufficiently for him, and I REALLY want to get my little 3-footed mud turtle, Millie, a 50 gal "lowboy" so she can have more room. So there's approximately...

    My turtle drowned, survived, now dead again?

    Hi, rgalpin, and welcome. So sorry to hear about your turtle. I had an eastern mud turtle who drowned, was revived, and ultimately had to be euthanized. That's her photo as my avatar. Like you, I found her stuck under a tank object- in this case, her basking platform. She was entangled in a...

    Above-tank basking areas, esp DIY

    Paschendale52- which specific tubing did you use? They’ve got sooooo many…😱 And did you build to set it on TOP of the tank rim, or to sit INSIDE on the rim ledge?

    Help! Blood leakage between the plastron and skin

    AH! I didn't realize you lived in another country. I think your tortoise is very fortunate to have an owner willing to go to such lengths to help it! Wishing you the very best of luck with your tortoise. I will be very interested to hear how it all goes. Hugs from Mooz
