    Substrate in dry area of a Waterland tub for Spotted turtles

    Land portion, use organic soil. Mix it with sand if your going to have some females. Or omit the sand as mixture. Aquatic portion I use water hyacinth and Umbrella papyrus.

    Muccia and her eggs

    I think I should take her to the vet to see if she gravid. Rarely does she leave her pond. This is the second time she went out of water. I put her in my mom vegetable garden. It not far from the pond. So I hope She feel comfortable and hopefully she find a suitable spot to make a nest.

    Very interesting to see your neonates to bask. When Neige and Lindy were at neonate stage, they NEVER basked!

    Her beak was already bought like that. I think it caused by the time she was caught for pet trade. Her condition has been disclosed by Turtles&Tortoise inc. I was startled too initially. But it seem she very robust. I kept eye on her everyday to be sure she fine. So far I see a normal turtle.

    Muccia and her eggs

    Today my mom saw my female European Pond Turtle out of the pond. She looks very dry and covered in spider webs. I wetted her with cool water. But for now I placed her in a tub with some organic dirt. Hopefully she will lay but she feel slightly less heavy than before? So that might be a sign she...

    Spotted Turtle Love

    Oh man! You NEED to share the entire enclosure of your spotted turtles. You successfully keep painted turtles with them? I am too skittish to even try to mix with anything with Spotted Turtles.
