I've recently acquired a pair of Spotted Turtles, and I've placed them in my outdoor Kameya Pond to enjoy the ever blazing Sol Cal sunshine.

To make the habitat more suitable for the Spotted,I've changed a few things in the Kameya Pond...

I've added a piece of plexi cover over the land area to use as green house cover and also a small viewing window when the turtles retreat into the shade...

The plexi cover can be lifted open to allow access for cleaning...

I've also added another piece the branch in the pond for the turtles to bask...

Here are the new spotted turtles I acquired...

The female Spotted is a little smaller than the male...

The photos below were taken with my new NIKON SLR camrea, and with the new zoom lens, I was able to capture some head shots of the turtles...

Nice spotteds. They are my favorite.

This pair I received are very personable...they would not jump into the water like the others when I get close to them, and I can just sit by the pond and watch them basking on the log in close distance...

that is just beautiful, I'm sure they couldn't be happier.
