    hiya, I have 2 musk terrapins and have had them for coming up to 6 years now. I recently found out that one of them had shell rot so I was given a pet safe iodine to use once a day to clear it up. The infection seems to have cleared as there isn’t an obvious open wound anymore, but she is still...

    Hi guys. My names Lianne. I’ve been looking at the internet all day and I’m just really worried. (Hopefully about nothing to major) and I can’t seem to find what my terrapin has, I have two river cooters they aren’t very old still quite small and I’ve had them about 2 months. This morning I’ve...

    Hi people, Really cannot tell if my terrapins have shell rot. Behaviours are fine eating as normal and not lethargic. I’ve tried scrubbing the white areas with a toothbrush and there is no debris or flaky bits or any liquid/puss coming off, it feels hard but there is definitely something going...

    Hi, £75 each. I have 5 babies which were born in August 2019. I'm uncertain of gender. They were over-wintered indoors but going forward these should live outside and hibernate etc. I'm close to Colchester. Buyer collects. Thanks Glen

    The title is pretty self explanatory. I am a fairly advanced reptile keeper, and I have lots of space for any new turtles or tortoises. I have kept one eastern box turtle since I was nine, and got another when I was 12 (Both were probably too young for me to have a box turtle). I also have kept...

    Hi! Our terra, Verne, is a squeaker. Normally, its only occasional, but for the last 2 days, its been a LOT more frequent. Its definitely unusual for him. There have been no changes in his environment of feeding. He seems well and happy, following his normal cycle of swimming, basking and...

    Hey guys, first post here, hope to follow up with many! :) So i recently "inherited" a male yellow bellied slider off my cousin, who grew too disinterested in it, and I am intending on upgrading to a larger tank, or a preformed pond. However I was wondering, what is the best size/shape for a...

    Due to some changes at Canterbury College Animal unit we are looking to re-home our group of terrapins and a group of African side neck turtles. We have had them for many years and are sad to see them go. Ideally we would like them to go in their groups, but if necessary will separate. 1st group...
