Box Turtles are Picky Eaters? [14 Jun 2008|10:41am]

1. I have a regular male box turtle, he's got some orange on his neck- anyway, he is the pickiest damn eater ever! Are all box turtles like this? He'd rather starve than eat pellets so I feed his canned stuff, then I'll give him treats like strawberries or bananna or oranges mixed in- and he'll only eat the treat and refuse to eat the regular food for the rest of the week! :-p And he hates lettuce, sometimes he'll eat bologna, and he's strangely attracted to Cheetos (even bit me b/c had the powder on my finger, OUCH!). Anyone else have this problem? What should I do about it?

2. It never seems to be 'box turtle season' whenever I go to the pet store anymore, not even at the reptile pet stores- why is this? And the box turtles they do have are really ugly and roundish and expensive, not at all like the one I have-- I wanted to get my little guy a friend but do you think slightly different species would be compatible? I don't want them to kill eachother, I just don't want mine to be lonely anymore.

3. My turtle is very grumpy and HATES sunlight... I read somewhere that turtles need sunlight daily so I keep trying with mine but the more I try the more he hates me. Anyone else have this problem?

4. My turtle LOVES swimming in the bathtub... is this normal? He's crazy and will put his head under water long enough to scare me to death. Does anyone else's trutle act like this? I didn't know box turtles could be so aquatic (except for the whole pooping part, gross!)

Any advice or insight you could give me would be greatly appreciated :-)

My box turtle is out of control, it scratches and scratches to get out but then when I let it out it just goes and hides in the corner- whether I put his cage in sunlight or not :-p What the hell is his problem??

Hi there.
Well, my turtle is doing pretty fine, but I've got a few things I've been wondering. First off, I took my turtle (whom I named Bowser) to see a friend who claims to be an expert on turtles, though he's quite a shady character so I don't know if I should trust him. Anywho, the friends said Bowser is a Mach Turtle, which he says is illegal to own in Michigan. I tried searching online for some info about mach turtles, but I didn't see anything. Here are some more pictures of her, if anyone has any idea what kind of turtle she is, or if she really is in fact a mach turtle, please comment. Thanks.

Hi there.
I recently found a turtle, and brought him home with me. I was feeling kinda guilty for a while but there's really no way I can put him back at the lake I found him at. And now, I'm feeling worse, because I think he's a map turtle, and someone told me map turtles are endangered species. Could anyone tell me if this is true? I tried looking it up online, but all I found was info about endangered sea turtles.

Here are some pictures of him.Collapse )

Thanks, I appreciate any help I can get!

my turtles's water has a film on it...i noticed it right after it was changed like 2 days ago. He diden't seem to mind it so i diden't think anything of it until today. He's on his rock basking and has white filmy stuff on his neck, what looks like is in his water. I don't know what it could be...we diden't use anything to clean his cage(chemicals etc.) we just rinsed it a few times and filled it back up. So whats the deal?

Hey guys. I'm new to the community and the owner of a red eared slider. He was given to us by a friend about 2 weeks ago, but he hasn't been eating. I think he's sick. We had him in a little bitty plastic pet cage(like the ones they give you when you buy a hermit crab at the mall) with some rocks and water for like a week with no water pump or uv light. SO anyway he just kinda lays around all day. When we got him his new huge tank, pump, and uv light he seemed to look a bit more active so we thought he was feeling better. But he still hasn't eaten(since we got him). I dont think the previous owner had a uv light on him, but he says that turtle used to eat all the time and swim around and looked heatlthy. Now he's just kinda dull looking, and if he is sick i need to know how to care for him. I looked at a turtle info page but lack of apetite and listlessness seems to be a symptom for every sickness listed. Help please!

I'm posting my latest pics of Swimmy, my Red Eared Slider and his new 55 gallon tank.
I've learned a few things lately about feed and care, and I've had this little swimmer for six months doing well now. He's just over three inches and six months old.

More pics are available over here, with close ups of the tank as well and at redearedsliders.

I was searching for a turtle community (I have three) and found this place. I like it. I will help save it from hell. And stuff. Randomness is my favorite.

Hello, once again I would like to stress the importance of remembering to do something, dadadada. I think I just started typing that without having a meaning or a purpose for typing it. I really don't have anything to say, just wanted to be heard. Isn't that how they define an idiot?

Tomorrow, 5:00 at the UNM bookstore, there will be a rally for peace. It will be a sit in, and it will be peaceful. It will be partially a peace vigil, so be sure to bring your candles. There will be a discussion of the war, and notifications of what the "president" has to say. See you there, hopefully.

P.S. sorry about multiple postings.
