If a pet turtle is put in the refrigerator will it hibernate?
Actually, if the conditions are right, it will. The problem is, what if you lose power and the fridge goes off? What if there is a problem with the fridge and it seems to be working on the outside, but is actually not cold enough on the inside, or becomes dangerously cold? Your turtle could either awaken from its hibernation locked in a fridge with no food or escape, or would die from freezing.
All and all, do not put your turtle in a fridge. The turtle gets no physical benefits from hibernation, and it is far too risky.
put it in a box
you can put fish in the tank but you can also put frogs in it too!
yes, they will. They will hibernate in a aquarium. But make sure you put i lot of outside dirt in there, put some so the toad can bury itself. Frogs dont. If you bought it at a pet shop it wont. It will if you cought it outside.
Have a turtle but you hate it and now you want a cat you want to get rid of the turtle but the turtle was expensive?
Put a top on its tank and tape it down. If it roams the house, then,you should not own a pet.
I live in NJ and I suddenly fell in love with the idea of having a pet turtle. I already knew the amount of care and effort you need to put into them but I dont know where i can purchase one. (pet store recommended.)
Well, the first thing you should do is put them in a bucket if they hatch drive or bike there and send them free and if there hungry feed them the turtle food from a pet store.
I took a turtle from the wild and now it is dying and won't eat or move so should I put it back or is it going to die either way?
The turtle may be behaving that way because the weather is getting cold and it is preparing to hibernate. It can be very dangerous and unhealthy for the turtle, to let it hibernate in captivity. If you choose to keep it, you will need to get a heat lamp immediately. A UV heat lamp will simulate the summer sun and provide the Ultra-Violet (UV) light that the turtle needs, so the turtle will stay warm… Read More
In the wild, turtles bury themselves deep in the mud of their favorite pond, and hibernate all winter. Obviously, this isn't possible for a turtle who lives in a tank. It is dangerous and unhealthy to let a captive turtle try to hibernate. What you need to do is buy a UV heat lamp to put/hang over the tank. The heat lamp will simulate the summer sun, and the turtle will go through the winter… Read More
Do pet turtles slow down on their eating at this time of year and should there be a light for him if he is inside?
Turtles normally bury themselves deep in the mud and hibernate all winter. Obviously, a captive turtle in a tank cannot do this. It can be very dangerous to let a pet turtle hibernate at home. Normally, people get a UV heat lamp for their turtles. The UV heat lamp simulates the summer sun, so the turtle goes through the winter without hibernating. The heat lamp can be left up all year round, if you want… Read More
No. There is no need to put honey in a refrigerator.
Well, if you have a turtle as a house pet, then before allowing your pet to wonder around the house, check for any plastic materials that are out where he can reach it and put them away... duh. And if you are talking about a random turtle that u saw eating plastic, then you can't really do anything except for pick up the plastic. Can't really tell a turtle not to eat something, it won't… Read More
If u mean a pet you must have a salt water tank or watever water they live in. If u mean like to eat to save for later put them in your refrigerator
Open the refrigerator, put the giraffe in, close the refrigerator.
First if you have not already got a tank, go to a pet store and ask for the right size tank for your turtle. Also while you are there get at least 2 or more bags of gravel. Plus get some sand too. fill the bottom of the tank with the gravel and put a large hill goring up with the sand so your turtle can have land. put some small logs and drift wood… Read More
Yes, turtles can be in the sun. I think they get vitamin d from the sun, so it would be good for it as long as the turtle keeps hydrated and isn't in the sun for too long. I'm not really an expert, but I have had a couple of pet turtles. My turtle has a lamp that can probably be bought at most pet stores, so that would be an alternative. If it goes… Read More
all you really need is a rock that is big enough to hold the turtle and it has to go above water to let the turtle climb out of the water and onto dry land to bask. Above to rock...there needs to be a heating lamp. If you dont have a heating lamp then put some kind of light over the basking area until you get one. Of course if you want to spoil your… Read More
the type of water that you need would depend on the type of turtle that you have. If you got your turtle from a pet shop they should be able to tell you, but if you got it from a lake or the ocean then you would need to make the water as similar as possible. Either way your water would need to be teated. You could probable just phone a pet shop and tell… Read More
Yes I have two pet turtles and they will bite you if you put your hands next to their mouth. And if u pick them up you will get Salmonilla which is a disease in the turtles.

Don't let it hibernate. It is dangerous and unhealthy to let a captive turtle go into hibernation. What you need to do is buy a UV heat lamp to put/hang over the tank. The heat lamp will simulate the summer sun, so your turtle will go through the winter without hibernating. You can buy heat lamps and UV bulbs at Petco and other pet stores. You can even buy a timer for the heat lamp… Read More

My personal rule is, never put anything hot in a refrigerator. Let is cool first.
Its ok to put your turtle in tap water, but only if you put water conditoner from the store in
You can put turtle eggs in a box. Make sure you do not turn them over as this can kill the developing turtle. Do not expose to temperatures above 95 degrees.
YES, you can put a map turtle in the same tank with a slider.
Nothing ,if the refrigerator is working properly. If you put water in the freezer it will become ice.

Not a heater, a heat lamp. In the wild, turtles bury themselves deep in the mud and hibernate during the winter months. Obviously, this isn't possible for a turtle who lives in a tank.

It depends on the size of the fish and the size of the turtle.

No, you do not put the turkey in your refrigerator after cooking. Give it time to cool down so your meat does not make you sick.
When you put a pet to sleep, you euthanized it.
The snapping turtle will try to attack or kill the box turtle. Some times even eat the box turtle
Depends on the turtle species and fish species. But probably not.
Yes. If the fish is much larger than the turtle, it is possible the the turtle will leave it alone, but things like feeder goldfish will be eaten rather quickly. If you are looking to put fish in the tank as pets, do not, as they will most likely be eaten. If you are looking for fish to specifically feed to the turtle, ask your local pet store what fish to purchase to give them… Read More
