I've had a painted turtle for about 5 to 6 years now in a 45 gallon tub and is doing perfectly fine he even eats of my hand. He's a male because he is around 6 inches long and has huge claws. I was wondering if i could add another baby turtle to give him some company or is it dangerous?

    Painted turtles are generally not aggressive so there shouldn't be any problem. He may appreciate the company as well.

I currently have an african side necked turtle. I was out looking at musk turtles today and wondered if they could be kept together? My ASN is around 5 years old I think. It is about 27cm long. I've had it around 8 months my friend gave it to me as she could no longer care for it. It is unknown if it is male or female. Please could you help as I have read lots of different views and I'm getting confused with all the different information.

    If it worked for the pople that the two different turtles got along - then it worked and you have that opinion. If it didn't work then you have that opinion. It may or may not work for a variety of reasons. There is no reason that it shouldn't but you don't have to have them on top of each other either. You watch them, give them each their own safe place etc. Two different dogs or children may or may not get along. You just take the situation and act accordingly.

    You could put different species but I would be very careful! All turtles and tortoises carry different bugs. These bugs won't hurt the carrier however they can kill other species. I wanted to put an African pancake tortoise with a Russian tortoise and my reptile savy vet advised me against it. Also side neck turtles are know to be slightly agressive to the same sex. Good luck:)

    AHHH sorry the lightbulb is on now. You should be fine with some sort of regular lightbulb for basking - and a UV bulb for sunlight. Every time I see pictures of Saudi Arabia - the sun is shining. Let them be ouside a little. We (my company) installed (honest) telephone billing software for the Riad airport there about 1987... I had to do the contract in the US so the guys came here - most enjoyable experience and an excellent installation. Now it is just about 30 years later and you and I are emailing and talking about lovebirds and turtles. Love it. Thank you.

    I was about to register when a storm struck "and we were off line". I am ancient heading on 60, eeeeek. but the animal world is a disease!
    Dear Michelle,
    I am looking for large aquatic turtles preferably, as re feed time things can be a bit dramatic. I have bred turtles, saved salamanders each year, mended peragrin falcons, deer + countless animals over the years. However you never stop learning!
    I also have searched for Rough Green Snakes for three years and never found anybody selling them, or (spotty frogs) as I call them, Bombina Orientalis. I do not know if you can help? I know 2 places in Fr. One Savannah going down hill, and the other only sells from the shop in Paris.....I am right down near Spain in the Pyrenees Atlantique, sorry no accents cannot find them on this arabic key board :)
    What happens re transport, Savannah used to transport very well, but no longer.
    Thank you for reading this; and I look foward to hearing from you.
    Fran
    I will now see if I can go back and finish regestering for this site. Take care.

    I just bought one, you can tell by their claws, the males are much bigger and the bottom of the males shell has a little curve down by the tail, the females are straight.
