Keeping Turtles

Turtles need water to feed. They cannot swallow their food unless they are under water. You will need a tank big enough for the turtle with adequate heating and UV for the little fella. Go to Austins Turtle Page for information requiring the correct dimensions and lamps, heaters, filters and food.

Baby turtles seem cute, but a snapper can get to around 3ft and will literally take your hand off in one bite so please make sure you know what you're doing! If you're a beginner, I'd recommend a smaller, less vicious type of turtle such as a Map or a Musk. There are different varieties of both, so there are lots to chose from!
