|Take care of a turtle is not easy, but it's very
rewarding. Turtles become soon members of our family.
Please don't buy a baby turtle just because your children ask, this happens most of times.
If you decide to take a turtle take only 1 turtle, because turtles grow fast, and two ore more adult turtles mean more work, more frequent cleaning. If you think you can do it then take another turtle.
||Turtles adapt themselves to life in captivity,
they learn soon that they depend from man, and also learn many other things,
recognize voices or their name.
In the next pages I describe the basics for creating an ideal habitat, I give indications on feeding and prevention of common diseases.
All you read comes from my personal experience as turtle owner, from my turtle vet advice, from what I read on books and other sites about red eared sliders.
If you have any question you can write me an e-mail, if possible I will be glad to answer.
If you respect these rules your turtle will be healthy and
will give you years and years of love and satisfactions !
