    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...

    Hi Guys/Gals We inherited a stinkpot (Rodney... because he's a bit of a plonker) when our son moved out a few weeks ago and couldn't take it with him. We are now also moving and unable to take him with us. We believe it's a male, approx 3 years old, and need to find him a new home ASAP. We are...

    As I am going to university next year (where there is a no pets policy in my halls) I am giving away my turtle. From the nail length and concave plastron I estimate that it is a male turtle. He has a shell length of 10cm and eats everyday. He loves to bask which is a rare trait from this mainly...

    Hi all, I was hoping to replace the play sand in my turtle tank with a black sand. I'm not entirely sure on what black sand would be best as I know some of it can be extremely coarse and therefore sharp. Do any of you have any advice on any types that you have used before? Thank you in...

    I have noticed that my juvenile stinkpot musk turtle's mouth looks to be eroding and is a strange shape. It is not symmetrical on each side and just doesn't look right. I will provide some photos but I suspect it is mouth rot and would like another opinion before I take him to the vet. He eats...

    Hello I have a stinkpot/musk turtle about 15 months old and when I got him/her (not sure if its a him or a her) :gasp: its shell seemed a little weird. It has kind of a dent in it and hasn't been growing as I expected it to, I also got a razor back turtle at the same time from the same pet store...

    Hello, I m hoping to get a common musk turtle as a pet from the local pet shop as they are cheap (not to mention very cute!). We found a cheap tank large enough to fit them in, and I know that they live for 50 years etc., but are they worth the money? Thank you, Mt360

    Basically the male has started sexually harassing the female and they need seperating and I can't afford seperate tanks at the moment. I do not mind which sex you have, but the female has a small bite wound on her tail. This hasn't affected her behaviour or feeding. Overall the male is a bit...

    I have both a male and female common musk turtle, purchased without decent research into the solitary nature of the turtles. Recently the male has started showing signs of sexual interest and is being rejected by the female. This has led to the female being harassed around the tank, which has...

    Ok, firstly let me explain myself. Usually I do bucket loads of research before buying but rushed into getting my new friend for a reason. For the last two or three months he has belonged to a neighbour and from what I have gathered was living in an unheated and unfiltered 12x6x8 tank which was...
