  1. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    Hi! I have two Eastern Musk Turtles that I've had since they were hatchlings. One is two years, the other a year and a half. I'm having difficulty figuring out the sexes of them, and was hoping someone could help me out. I bought them both as female, and there haven't been any problems, but I...
  2. Shelled - Turtles & Tortoise
    I noticed my musk turtle moving around a lot trying to get out of the water. I assumed she was just trying to bask but she continues to make a lot of sounds. I wasn’t sure if they were sounds of discomfort or just natural noises she would make when she would come up to breathe. I took her out...

    Hi all, I noticed today that my 10 year old common musk turtle has a white growth on one of her legs, it is a slight lump and is around pea sized. It must have appeared fairly recently as a picture I took 4 days ago shows nothing on her leg. It's probably not a coincidence that this appeared...

    Hi first post so apologies if it's in the incorrect location. I have a 12 - 14 year old Common Musk Turtle, who 4 days ago I found upside down in his tank. I instantly grabbed him the moment I saw him and and have been nursing him since. His limbs don't seem to move properly anymore, and he...

    Some extremely generous friends got together and gave me a large Exo-Terra setup and some cash to outfit it with. It's the kind with the extra deep section in the bottom (holds about 30 gallons). I'm a fish guy and haven't had reptiles since I was a kid so I wanted something aquatic even though...

    Had to take on some turtles from a friend who couldn't look after them properly. Looking for a 5* home ASAP. They can come with their home (it has a siliconed crack, see picture below, but completely watertight), and accessories for an extra £60. Filter and heater and light all new. Turtle...

    Looking to re-home these 2 musk turtles. I expect one male and one female based on them being the same age and the significant size difference. Free to a good home. More pictures available here: Musk Turtles by mbrouwer | Photobucket

    We need to rehome our musk turtle - we have had him/her 8 years and it's partner has just died. The turtle is a bit of a bully and bullied the other one so would recommend keeping it by itself. If you collect you can have the tank and set up gear. We live near Dorking.
