    We have a female Mississippi map turtle, about 6 years old. About two months ago, she started swimming around her tank at high speed with her head and arms tucked in, and bashing into the glass and rocks. This has damaged the front of her shell. She was out in a garage, which she had been...

    After rescuing 4 map turtles from a friend, their shells were in pretty awful conditions. They had no calcium, no uvb light and were fed only on ham. After 3 months of providing the correct set up, correct diet and supplements there is significant improvement in the shells!
