    Hello, We have a YBS that is around 7 years old. Seems healthy and active enough, and has always eaten pretty much whatever we throw in there. We tried to keep it mainly to leafy green vegetables, supplemented with pellets, but often put in other fruit and veg. Pretty much everything was eaten...

    Please help me ID what is going on with this turtle, I found it unmoving at a pond on my property earlier today and at first I thought it was dead, and once I saw it move its head and blink I decided it looked malnourished due to the lack of meatiness in its legs (I know this might not make much...

    I've had my turtle for a few months now so I'm feeling confident I'm doing a reasonably good job! But I've got large pebbles/gravel in the bottom of my tank and it just gets so messy and very hard to clean, if there a easier substrate or should I just get rid? Also my internal filter is doing a...

    Hi,:flrt: I was bought a yellow bellied slider for my birthday in November by a friend.. We were told by the seller that we were to keep the turtle in lukewarm water and all they needed was a rock? Is this correct because on all the websites it indicates a heater and filter is needed? A friend...

    Hi! I recently got a year old yellow bellied slider from a family I know. I'm worried about the condition of her shell, it has a greenish-white appearance unlike what I've seen in most images of yellow bellies. She was kept in pretty bad conditions by her previous owners so I feel like it's...
