    Was given a wild-caught baby painted turtle, what do I do?

    Sorry to post in this thread again. Please move if it shouldn’t be here, I had a question about the lighting Markw84 mentioned above. Is a compact fluorescent light ok for turtles? Is this different than the coils that are not good for tortoises? I currently have a linear T8 UVB and heat lamp...

    How much do you feed your Hermann’s?

    Thank so much! Very helpful.

    How much do you feed your Hermann’s?

    I feel silly asking this question, but how much food should I be giving my Hermann’s at feedings? I’ve learned about the different types of food that are good, but not exactly how much. I’ve been giving mine a mix of yard dandelion leaves, clovers, arugula, sometimes escarole, collard greens...

    Are THH legal to own in Va?

    Just wondering if anyone knows, since THH are on the Red list as endangered, are they illegal to own in Va?

    Also Dandelion?

    Oh ok, thanks! I’m used to seeing the more pointed leaves like the third picture, but I’m probably just being overly paranoid.

    Also Dandelion?

    Hello, I have some weeds growing in the same areas of my dandelion. I’ve avoided giving them to my Tort because I wasn’t sure if they were also dandelion. I am pretty sure the third is dandelion, but the first two any thoughts? Thanks you

    Should I be seeing live pinworms?!?!?

    Hello, Just wanted to give an update. Otsokrikri completed his second round of Meds this past weekend and I took a fecal sample into the Vet today. Got a call a little while ago that the sample was clear of parasites! Hooray! I’m planning to move him out of the enclosure tonight so I can get...

    Is our 5yr old Turtie a boy or girl??

    Thank you, I want to do the more weed, leaf/flower route, but always good to know safe alternatives.

    Is our 5yr old Turtie a boy or girl??

    Tom, were those super market greens: endive, escarole, arugula, cilantro, specific to Red Foots or for tortoises in general? Are those ok for a Hermann’s?

    Need Help for Possible Sick Box Turtle

    Hello, just wanted to give an update on my friends Box turtle. She is still constipated, though did finally have a bowel movement. This allowed the vet to check a sample and turns out she does have parasites and is now on meds, as well as a laxative. She was also told to syringe feed her baby...

    Should I be seeing live pinworms?!?!?

    So sorry! I feel your pain. I had to get rid of four 24-quart bags of Reptibark that was in my torts enclosure :(. Hopefully after the next treatment he will be cleared. He does not like being on the newspaper. Are you sure you saw eggs? I thought pinworm eggs were not visible to the naked eye...

    Hello from Portugal!

    They are soo cute! Maybe Ebony & Ivory?

    Should I be seeing live pinworms?!?!?

    Thanks so much. That makes sense. Do you know if it’s easier to have re-infection on med since worms aren’t being killed?

    Should I be seeing live pinworms?!?!?

    Oh ok. Yes, except this was a dose three days in a row then redo in 3weeks.

    Should I be seeing live pinworms?!?!?

    Eeek! I hope they are dying. I'll definitely let everyone know what happens. He will have the second dose of meds starting next thursday.

    Should I be seeing live pinworms?!?!?

    Thank you. I got paranoid before reading your response and just got rid of the top. I've laid large garbage bags over the bottom of the enclosure and covered that with lots of newspaper. Thank you again.
