No, they cannot leave their shell, but they do it the same way as we do.
Usually you have to feed your turtle about 3 times a day (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and remember the like fruits, vegetables and leaves.
they need to basket for vitamin 3d
so that they are safe and also it takes them absolutly AGES
No. Hopefully and presumably not.
anytime when the heat is right!
They actually like cantaloupe the best. They might like strawberries also. When you feed it to the baby turtle you probably need to cut up the fruit int tiny pieces!
it varies. most of it is in the sea, which you know it is filled with animals and plants. it is also in streams, lakes, and rivers. it also is mostly in tubs or tanks.Tanks have filters and heaters. aslo a basking platform. it is filled with water of course. tanks and tubs are mostly filled with fake plants and decorations.
they are on top of each other
every other day
long neck turtles eat crayfish, fish, worms, tadpoles.
What adolescent reptiles eat differs from species to species. Baby lizards eat small bugs, like aphids and grasshopper type of bugs.
It depends what kind of turtle it is. Red eared slider turtles start out small but then grow to be close to 10 inches long.
Absolutely NOT ! That is NOT part of a turtles natural diet !
If your turtle a baby and just got to its tank you should give it a couple days to get used to his envirment. I aslo say u should see a doctor to make sure your turtles healthy. what have u tried to feed your turtle.Always make sure your tank is ok for your turtle to live in !!!!!!!!!!! fruits a turtle can eat: bananas grapes apples (make sure to put in small sizes) veggies… Read More
i dont have a turtle soorry
Hi. The temperature for turtle tanks should be 70 to 80degrees. The best temperature for turtle tanks is 75~80 degrees. If you want to get more advice about turtles, feel free to email me. My email is: firstname.lastname@example.org
reptiles are well known for not sleeping for long periods of time. but it comes to a time during the winter when the sun don't shine that turtles lizards and snakes do hibernate for few months.
they live until winter when they die because of low supply of food but the queen wasp is able to hibernate allowing her to survive http://site.wikianswers.com/templates/icons/ql.gif); background-position: left top; background-repeat: no-repeat; height: 22px">
a very slow vampire Or a very fast turtle.
The Earth On Turtle's Back is a myth on how life on earth began. Some believe that god created everything and Adam and Eve were the first lives on earth. In Earth On Turtle's Back the Woman From The Sky had a dream about a tree being uprooted and when she looked through the hole where the tree once was she fall down from the sky. Doves caught her fall but couldn't put her down… Read More
turtles are aggressive in the bed
There could be blood in the turtle tank because they have bit one another. A little blood in the water goes a long way. Turtles will heal fine in the water, if the condition persists, see a veterinarian.
It's called either a Herman's or Horsefield's tortoise, but they both get about the same size just that theirshell pattern is different. They make good pets but really just to look at you can't really play with them and they need a vivarium to keep them warm otherwise they get sick.
Pirates and big birds.
No. All reptiles are cold blooded and need a heat source which you can buy at a pet store.
If a turtle is cold, it will slow its movements and metabolism in preparation for hibernation. Please make sure you have a water heater and a hot basking lamp, and keep your tank away from doorways and cold-leaking windows.
There would be one less turtle in the world ! Turtle soup is (apparently) very tasty, though I've never tried it myself.
from 20 up to 30
He better of having a halfe of tank and a rock so he can climb up for some air..
arent u ganna tell me fools
It uses it for two things, number one is so it can get more oxygen caught in its shell so it can swim better. It also fends it off from predators, as in a predator cannot bite it if the spike is piercing its mouth.
They are not for me. But they are for some people because they eat vegetables etc.
Probably he/she is biting off its shedding-skin.
yes they can only for about 20 mins have fun with your bady turtle out of the water and rember only about 20 mins
The biggest turtle is the Leatherback Turtle.
take it to the vet.... and get it checked out. there, now you know the Question.
Well it could be Wild Bate, Sources Forces, Titanic Panic, Loosened Turtle, Ugly Boxers, Stanpied Losers, or The Ghost.
BACTERIA Bacteria reproduce by a process called binary cell division. In this process the parent cell divides to produce two different daughter cells that are similar in shape and size. First the nucleus splits then there is a wall that forms in the middle and finally the bacterium splits completely. FUNGI Fungi can reproduce by two means: 1) Asexually 2)Sexually In the asexual method hyphae's form a swelling at the top known as sporangium. This… Read More
It probably needs room for walking . you probably need a bigger tank
Note: you can't really tell the sex of a turtle until after it's a baby. Male map turtles are about 1/3 the size of their females. Male map turtles have a concave under shell. Female map turtles have a convex under shell.
Verne the Turtle .
It's as good as any.
Turtles do not fly.
There aren't many ways to tell the difference between a snapping turtle and a regular turtle. However the main difference is that the snapping turtle has a more distinct, and bigger beak. It looks more vicious and sharper than a regular turtles beak. Hope this is ok! From, Jane Goodall. :)
Yes, a small, shallow dish of water should be provided. If you are not an experienced keeper, please do not attempt to keep this CITES II species. If you have to ask this question, you are not ready to own one. See related link for more information.
the turtle is always scared when you put her on the land because maybe you are mean to her outside. perhaps she get hurt outside so she is scared if she will get hurt again
Lettuce is not an appropriate food for most reptiles, as it is very low in nutritional value. Other types of greens, such as dandelion, collards, mustard greens, and turnip tops, are better choices. Not all turtles will eat greens. You need to know the proper care requirements for the species you have. Some turtles are omnivores, while others are carnivores. yes they do, because it is soft enough for them to chew, they eat any… Read More
There will be fewer frogs maturing from the remaining population.
Telling the difference between a male or female tortugas can be done by viewing the underside of the animal. The male and female have different patterns and marking on their undersides.
no they do not. Infact turtle shells are actually part of their body. The spine is connected to the shell
A male turtle has a hole on the tail which is faraway from the body a female's tale has a hole closer to the body it may also be under the shell
It doesn"t have turtle meat
how long do turtles come up to breath air
I think the leatherback turtle or some other turtledoo in Asia idk i hope this helps a bit :)))))))
No, AQUATIC turtles are great swimmers, I keep mine in a tank that 20 inches tall filled to the top and the turtles are only 1.5 & 2.25 inches in shell length. Red ear sliders, in the wild use deep water for protection from raccoons and other harmful animals.
they do a bit but not a lot
It dont matter what kind of turtle is it...if they stay in the water; the turtle will not form and therefor it will not hatch.
I had a turtle and i spent about 100 $ on him in one visit of the pet store. I got him water falls grass plants, you name it. And soon enough I found out that turtles love to dig or burro. His whole habitat was destroyed. Into wreckage that you couldn't believe a turtle not even 6 in. long could do. so i wouldn't recommend too nice of a habitat.
turtle's have a good sense of smell and good vision
no that means they have 'soft shell' that it to a vet asap!
in anna toasty's arms
petco, petsmart, etc
you can tell if a turtle is male or female from the rings around its eyes
take raw shrimp and chop it into small bits and feed to the turtle. you can also replace the shrimp with fish or crab.
I have a Yellow belly turtle & a Map turtle together & their fine. I just want to know if they can mate ?
no, only females can.
I've read that it was a shock to put them in colder water when they were just in warm water. All you have to do is simply replace the water with the same temperature as the original water.
I have to know! How did it bite you there? Any way use some hydrogen peroxide twice a day to kill infection. Then neosporin twice a day after the HP. Where a band-aid during the day and let it breath at night.
The bottom of his cage is most likely cold so he sleeps on his shell to conduct heat through his stomach. It helps his food digest better.
It's normal for a turtles shell for shed once a year. Skin sheddings are very rare. Your turtle probably has a fungus infection. Take him to the vet before it kills him. If your baby is a snapping turtle then it's normal for little things to be flapping off his shell.
you dont take it a bathe and seddie rules
I think so?.
Bog turtles are land turtles and land turtles. They are mostly land turtles.
As big as your mom
Yes in fact if u put your turtle in the bathtub u have to put salt in the water due to their salt water habitats But if you put a turtle in the bathtub the water mst be a perfect 65% Farentheit
Yes, they can be, but they have to be taken care of in the classroom. Be sure to properly research what your turtle's diet and living requirements are.
Because they do.
Turtles are in fact herbivores and carnivores so they can possibly feed on koi fish
In the wild turtles eat fish so they will probably eat your pet fish.
you can feed it lettece or other soft and crunchy veggies .
turtles eat all types of fruit things that are green like grapes but they may not because all i feed mine is turtle food and grapes
Yes, all turtles kiss or touch noses when they greet each other. It's the way they say hello and get information about each other. Just like dogs sniffing each others butts.
No because I live in NC and i got a pet turtle from the beach and i went to Petsmart to get stuff and they said it is illegal to sell turtles in NC.
Tortoises spend most of their lives on land, venturing into water to drink or bathe. They are not good swimmers and can easily drown if caught in a swift current.
You can't actually force your turtle to do what you want, so i suggest that you just give it some time to get used to you, and he/she will probably like you till' than!
Yes ,they would not hurt themselfs.
Sounds like your ejector is worn and not 'grabbing' the base of the shell securely. I would suggest having it examined by a qualified gunsmith and have them effect repairs.
Please take your turtle to the vet to be sure it's not suffering from any disease. Turtles can live fairly long so something is up. I agree with the poster below to a point. If the turtle is healthy then set it free. You can ask your vet where you can take the turtle. Usually parks with large ponds are a great place to start or even a zoo. Good luck Marcy Set it free… Read More
Yes turtles will lay eggs if they have not mated. The eggs will not be fertile in most cases, unless the turtle has mated previously. A growing number of species are known to retain sperm to produce mixed parentage clutches, sometimes for several years.
12 hours, or just like it is outside. Turtles need their sleep too.
A turtle that won't eat is probably sick. It could be as simple as insufficient warmth. Consult an expert at the pet store about sort of temperature a turtle aquarium should be. You may also need to see a vet.
Take your baby snapping turtle to the vet. It might be sick and need some medicine. Good luck:)
A little bigger than a quarter.
Answer Turtles need a warm environment to stimulate them to eat. If the water they live in is less than 70-80 degrees, they begin the hibernation process and stop eating. Try purchasing an aquarium heating pad (goes under it to warm water) and a UV light to warm him from above. Be sure your environment for him is correct. Snappers are water turtles so he'll need 2/3 of his tank to be under water deep… Read More
Snapping turtles like to feel safe by concealing themselves. Burrowing or digging under rocks or plant matter is normal behavior. Make sure the snapping turtle has adequate access to water for soaking and swimming.
My turtle didn't eat for 4 1/2 months so in between 2 and five months bacically.
Genetic modification is when you take a beneficial gene, a bit of DNA, from one species and add it to the DNA sequence of another species. The genetically modified subject will use the gene and benefit from it, for example to grow better fruit or be resistant to disease, or to produce insulin. The above process has been done for thousands of years by a bacteria called Agrobacterium which causes a plant root disease called… Read More
The proper rule of thumb is 10 gallons for every inch of Aquatic turtle you have. So if your three turtles each measure 4 inches long, for example, you need to have AT LEAST a 120 gallon tank. No Tank is Really Going to be Large Enough For a group of turtles, no aquarium is ever really going to be large enough. The post above provides an excellent guideline for how much swimming space to… Read More
