    Translation 'I have females that have been breeding in my yard, I need a male that change per adult female or small turtles'

    Tengo hembras que han tenido cría en mi patio, necesito un macho que cambio por hembra adulta o pequeñas tortugas.

I have found a Red-Eared Slider Turtle and I believe she is a female. She is about the size of a dinner plate and I don't believe she came from the wild because she has no scratches or any kind of damage to her shell. She seems like she is used to people handling her, and she likes to cover herself up with the towel. I am unable to keep her and want her to go to a good home. Please contact me as soon as possible so she can get the care she needs. I do not know how to care for her properly and don't want anything to happen to her because I am doing something wrong. I have been trying to feel her lettace. Please let me know if someone would like to take her or where I might take her. Thanks

    Bring her to a pet shop and donate her. Some times your local shelter will always take turtles and and be better suited to care for the turtle. Good rule of thumb, if it is out in the wild leave it there. Turtles adapte very well.

    I would love to have this turtle and would give her a very good home. I have always loved turtles and frogs and have had several over the years.

    If she isnt eating get some fish for it. They need meat as well. Iceberg lettuce doesn't have the needed nutrition.
  • peter lamborn - 2012-04-26
    If you haven't placed her yet, I'd like to have her if she's still avaliable. I live in Florida, but shipping shouldn't be a problem. Please reply whatever the answer is.

    Turtles usually adapt very well to the wild as long as the temperature are high enough.

    My dad recently found a big painter near echo lake in henrico, virginia. I don't know if that's the one you were talking about or not but it was in the middle of the road and me and my sister took him/her to the park and let him/her go.

My 12 years old boy has two painted turtles male/female for 2 months now. when I got both of them they where the same size, now  one is the size of a oreo cookie (Male) and the female much bigger like if it already has past for her 1 year (she's just fat). How can I tell how old are there... And what type of sickness they carry? Thanks!

    Dear Craig, Water turtles only eat once or twice a day. It also depends on the temperture of his/her enviroment. If it is to cold he or she is less likely to eat but if it is warm they will eat. I have a painted turtle of my own named oogway for a year now. Oogway does tend to be picky at times, but the are omnivores. Which means they eat bugs such as worms,flies, and some common water bugs also they eat crickets. They also will eat fish like some of your common goldfish and bait. They also eat a couple times of aquatic plants. But you must also get them a supplement for there calicum deficiency, you can purchase Reptomin which can be bought at your local walmart. And if it is under a year you want to make sure you get baby Reptomin which helps with there calicum deficiency for your younger turtle. Just let me know if you have any more question and I will try to help as best I can. Hoped this may of helped you with your turtle.

    I have two baby turtles. Not much bigger than an oreo cookie. How do i know if they are painted or red slider? Boy or girl ? Caught them at the lake, can you help?
  • Barb - 2012-08-13
    The difference between a red ear slider and a painted is, a red ear slider has line of red on the side of there head and are mainly green every where else. A painted has a orange belly and yellow and orange strips and are black or dark green color every where else. As for the sex that you can't really tell until they are older. Hope this is helpful.

My friend found a large painted turtle in the middle of a corn field yesterday and gave it to me, I named him GT for Giant Turtle. I have had many turtles before, but this one is much larger, from nose to tail he/she is about 8-9 inches long. I don't know his/her age or sex. Could somebody please help me figure out? Thanks! :)

    No creature eats the same amount all the time. If the behavior, the eating and the pooping is all OK - and no obvious symptoms, I would think he was just fine.
