Greetings from across the water! ^_^
I do not, as yet, own a turtle. I am gathering as much info as I can before I start doing anything (although I've found a few potential places to buy the turtles, just to price them out)
I have pieced together a lot of info about what they need to thrive...
Became a first time owner of a young reeves turtle a couple of weeks ago. I find that the majority of time he hides in the plants in his tank and he never comes out in the open? Is this normal for a young reeves turtle and if so when will he become more confident and out in the open.
This is probably one of the most difficult decisions I have to make but it is for the best because I am in a difficult situation.
I have two Reeve Turtles (Squirtle and Oogway) but I have to rehome one of them. The situation is one of my turtles has a habit of biting the other turtles tail and...
My Reeves Turtle is about 6 months old now and I currently feed him 4-6 Reptomin pellets a day. And once a week when I clean him I give him a chunk of bloodworms.
Is this okay? I wanted to double check as I don't want to be over or under-feeding him. Any advice would be great...
My reeves turtle is about 6 months old. I feed him 2-3 pellets daily. I hope this is right. Also once a week I clean his tank and give him vitamins.
However recently I have noticed green spots on his back, I took two pictures when I was cleaning his tank last. If anybody could look at them and...

I have a young female western hognose snake with rub set up, may be willing to swap her for baby musk or reeves turtles with set up. Also looking for full vivarium set up for 2 leopard geckos or a bearded dragon so may be willing to swap her for the right viv.
My reeve terrapin which is approx 1year old now has a Black 'fleshy' jelly like lump appeared and sticking out beneath its tail - It looks like its from its opening - This has been sticking out for 1 day now - my reeve terrapin 'fatboy' has been on the basking area alot more than what he/she...
Little info needed I have 2 reeves turts they are babies at the moment, I am currently feeding them King British Turtle and Terrapin food is this good food to be feeding them? (this is what the pet shop were feeding them) Also is there anything else I should be feeding them with this...
Hey you guys!
Does any of you know if there are any breeding programs for the Reeves turtle?
Anyone know what the situation for them is like now, compared to the late 90's when millions of them were slaughtered yearly for Asian medicine purposes?
All the best!
Hi guys & girlies!
Well, I'm pretty close to getting my first little Reeves turtle and I'm now in the process of choosing a name. I am hoping to get a male so have started to shortlist a few of my favourites
Here they are:flrt:
For the first time ever in my pet history, I am really struggling to name this guy! I've been calling him Vic (Reeves, see) but I'm not sure yet what sex he is so was looking for something unisex. Have been through my 'names I like' list and nothing. Tried looking up unisex Chinese...
