    Mccord’s Box Turtles

    Yes ma'am, up until mid-March. I cool them down from then up until the end of May. That is the timeline that has worked for me up here in N Ohio with the other Cuora species that I keep.

    Mccord’s Box Turtles

    The 2019's have been growing along nicely. They were introduced to pinkies last week and gobbled them up with vigor. They haven't shown any interest yet in fruit or veggies, but that will come in time as they age. They have been quite entertaining to work with thus far. Their personalities are...

    Question about canister filters

    Another huge Fluval fan here. I use the 200 and 300 series on anything under 50 gals, Anything over 50 gallons I go with the Fluval FX 4's and 6's. They are workhorse tanks and literally almost indestructible.

    White layer on eyes

    I believe you may be confusing it with Cuora mouhitii (3 Keeled Box turtle / Jagged Shell turtle). This is 1,000% a Mauremys (Chinemys) reevesii.

    White layer on eyes

    It is a Reeves turtle (Mauremys reevesii). It needs to be in a water environment with a basking area. If you can provide an enclosure that is 80% water and 20% land, that would be great. If not, that's ok too. But you must provide a basking area for it to pull itself out of the water. Based on...

    MEGAPHACELUM thread

    I'm not the one to ask that question of. I'm old school, and had a hard enough time accepting that there were 3 separate subspecies......

    It's always a thrill for me to come around the corner in the basement and catch one of them basking under their Powersun. .

    Favorite reptile youve ever owned

    There was a Dumeril's Boa from many years ago that I still think about today. But for me, it will always be the Platysternon.

    Cuora mouhotii obsti

    I don't know how, but I completely missed this thread! Outstanding!!!! This is one of my all time favorite species of that Asian region. I currently keep C m mouhoti (2 females) and have 2 hatchlings coming in next week. I had a beautiful group of 2.3 WC in the late 80's (Pyxidea! I'm still not...

    Spiny turtle care??

    Also, do not listen to that enchilada guy about the warm water temps. You need to keep it between 13C-20C for them to thrive. And keep it clean. If you do have sphagnum moss available there, throw a handful or two in the water. They will LOVE it. They like to nestle and crawl through it.

    Spiny turtle care??

    Also, that enchilada guy said keep water temp warm. Incorrect. Keep it 13C - 20C.

    Spiny turtle care??

    I had a fantastic group of these in the 1990's. The enclosure should be 75% land and 25% water. If they are kept indoors, the humidity level should be 70% +. You need to have a good canister filter for the water, or you will be doing frequent water changes. They inhabit higher elevations with...
