If a Eastern Painted Turtle get its leg bitten off will it grow back or will it get sick and die?
No, the leg will not grow back. You should take your turtle to the vet IMMEDIATELY your turtle could die from blood loss or infection.
Yes a eastern painted turtle is a water turtle, you can tell by it having either claws or webbed feet on their back legs
I have a turtle just like that and im guessing its a painted turtle. but im not sure.
if the cake was an unbaked snapping turtle cake then sure this would happen
To estimate count the number of boxes on its back.
If your paint turtle has all of her eggs and continues to flip over on her back i would recommend taking her to the vet for a better medical exam.
its back oxides to the point where it cant breath roperly and then it removes its shell and dies
A turtle with a red back is called a "red back turtle"
depends on WHERE the nail was bit. if it was directly off of the foot then robably not depending on the damage beneath the skin. if it was only bitten off the nail then yes like us turtle nails can grow back. think of it as clipping your nails.
you can tell the difference cause the males have longer claws(nails) and it's back is kinda square.

Count the rings on the back of your turtle.

Of course not. A turtle is GOD'S creations.
Black-knobbed map turtle or an Alligator snapping turtle
That depends on the size of the turtle and the size of your tank. If the turtle is the size of your palm or smaller then fill the tank no more than 2-3 times his height (as if he were standing all the way up on his back two feet). If the turtle is larger than that you can fill a tank up to around 2 feet deep. Make sure the turtle has a spot where he can get out of the water easily to bask under a light.
If the Petpet has been zapped by the Petpet laboratory ray it will go back to its original form, but if it has been painted with a paintbrush it will stay painted.
The name "leather back turtle" comes from the turtles soft, leathery shell. Unlike most turtles, the leather back turtle has a flexible shell.
Yes it can. I found a painted turtle that was badly hurt and I nursed it back to good health and it has been with me for a year now and is just fine. I provide it with an aquarium to live in with plenty of water which is changed every week. It is important to keep them clean.
You can attract a turtle by putting out lettuce or carrots!!
A turtle carries his for life on his back- it's his shell.
