Can yellow belly turtles live in a bowl?
I would not recommend keeping your yellow belly turtle in a bowl to live in. Yellow belly turtles can grow up to just under 1 foot, and they grow quickly. Make sure you have land for your turtle to rest, and a heating lamp and a UVB lamp so they can bask and get enough warmth and calcium. I have a yellow belly who's 2 years old and lives in a 30 gallon tank, but I know he'll need a bigger one as he gets older. In order to keep your turtle healthy, then, you should not keep it in a bowl.
