Where I live it’s hard to find this species of turtle, but I do know that where some reside(at the end of a three mile hike). I’m going to keep him for a week or two because he is light as a feather than bring him there. But for now I’m gonna dig for worms and keep him away from contaminating my torts.Wow! What a cool find. What's your plan? Will you release him after a good meal and a soak? Will you relocate him closer to water? Will you care for him for awhile?
In your opinion what should I do, should I release it immediately or try and get him to fatten up.The western pond turtle is protected. You can not keep one under any circumstances. Illegal to own, as for the worms. They are usually species specific, so they should cause you no harn. I agree do not eat the poop
@russian/sulcata/tortoiseSo immediately release him? I’m still wondering where he came from.
