    I would suggest that you go to a petsmart or another pet store and ask the fish and reptile department what to do...they would know. But do not allow the turtle to remain in that condition without treating it.

I have a female spiny soft shell turtle. She just laid 4 eggs and now there is a red balloon like sack about the size of my thumb hanging out. Is this normal or what could it be? I have been calling vets but I have not found any that have knowledge of a soft shell.

I saw two turtles with long claws that looked like the Florida box turtle. They were in a man made lake in Amarillo, Texas. Long way from Florida.

I have a red eared slider that we have had for 23yrs. This is the only turtle I have had in that time. Recently when cleaning the tank, I discovered an egg about 1 in long. This is the first time in 23 yrs this has happened-is it normal for her to lay an egg after this long?

Texas? Bah. We just found a florida box turtle in Moorhead, Minnesota. We're thinking of seeing if the local zoo will take it in... it's definitely not native here.

Help! My Eastern painted turtle, Pearl, managed to get out of the pond and has not returned. The weather here is in the mid 90's. My yard is enclosed and she could not leave this area. She has been awol for one week. What are the chances that she is alive and will return?

I have a yellow eared slider that I caught out of a pond 20 years ago and she is still only about halfway through her life span.
