the mother turtle digs a hole in sand to lay her eggs. she digs it in a hole to protect them from predators. when the babies are ready to hatchvthe dug their way out and they lready have a shell so now they are all on their own. they do not live with their mother.
"Don't buy one. All huffy bikes are recycled peices of china's glory (junk) the steel or aluminum made by huffy hasn't been properly welded or prepared which makes the frames hazardous."
Sounds like you don't own one or know much about these.
I own seven of these and they are ridden extremely hard by me, my three sons, their buddies, my scout troop, the scouts at powwow each summer (about 700 of them at this four day event) plus the teens at the local skatepark plus, the ABA BMX Grandnationals for the last two years where they were ridden by 1500 people again over four days each time. I would say as somebody who owns and rides this product and has for 8 years now that these are pretty solid. I did manage to break two frames due to fatigue after 7 years of the described heavy use and abuse (read extreme use) but re welded them and they are back in action.
Huffy contracts a manufacturer and has their name put on them- much the same as the bike company Giant manufactures frames for many competitor brands and then decals them with the customers brand name hence huffy doesn't manufacture but specifies the product details and then has it manufactured by various manufacturers. As for the Slider-some of the parts come from the same company's that brands like Haro, GT, and Redline spec there parts from. Oh yes- these brands are manufactured completely in Asia also.
it lays its egge on beacers
Those white things are poop or a your turtle could have a desease and possibly if you have a boy and girl turtle together it could be a baby forming.
they're cold blooded

Try This.Instead of giving your turtle food everyday or whenever you do.Buy it live feeder fish then pour them in the tank.So the turtle gets the option to eat whenever it wants to.
Eastern Painted Turtles LOVE sliced hard boiled eggs. Especially females and babies. Just don't give it to them too often or let them gorge themselves to the puking point. They are also crazy about turtle pellets, live feeder fish, small snails, tiny tadpoles, and aquatic plants. Although I haven't given to my Easties yet, I have heard that, every once in a while, you can give them raw ground beef, cooked chicken, and soggy dog food.
Painted turtles usually have horizontal stripes running down their neck. Snapping turtles are drab in color. The maximum size of a Painted turtle is 10 inches. The maximum size for a snapper is between 20 and 30 inches. Snapping turtles cannot withdraw their heads, whereas Painted turtles can close up almost completely.
they hatch from 72-80 days after theyve been layed
Painted Turtles do hibernate in the wild if the temperature is cold. They will burry themselves in the mud at the bottom of a pond, lake, or river for a long time. In captivity, they shouldn't hibernate if they are kept indoors because their body senses that it is still warm and it is not the time to hibernate.
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.
I also have a wild painted turtle, and everyone tells me to let it go, but he is doing just fine. I usually feed him...
Turtles can stay under water from one hour to five hours depending on the species, water temperature ect.
One reason for our ears to turn red is that at times our sympathetic nervous system kicks in on its own and causes our bodies to release adrenalin and noradrenalin. Noradrenalin is the chemical responsible for relaxing the smooth muscle in the walls of the blood vessels. When the smooth muscle in the blood vessels relaxes the diameter of the vessel increases and the volume of blood passing through the blood vessel also increases. This is referred to as vasodilatation. When this happens the skin feels warm and may have a pink or red colour.
This usually happens when we feel nervous or stressed and is part of the "fight or flight" mechanism, even though the only "threat" may be social. However, in some people the sympathetic nervous sytem is overactive. This can be caused by inherited genes. We have no conscious control over the sympathetic nervous system so it kicks in without our decision to be "embarassed."
The sympathetic nervous system is part of the autonomic nervous system (ANS), the control system for the body that keeps all our internal organs functioning properly. These maintenance activities are primarily performed without conscious control or sensation, The nerves report directly back to the brain stem and can keep functioning even when the conscious mind is no longer working, hence the ability of some brain-dead patients to continue to breathe. The ANS controls heart rate, digestion, respiration rate, salivation, perspiration, diameter of the pupils, micturition (the discharge of urine), blushing, sweating, and erection.
Uncontrollable blushing is also called Idiopathic Craniofacial Erythema. Treatments include anti-anxiety medications, clonidine (inhibits the action of noradrenaline), beta-blockers, hypnosis, psychotherapy, and as a last resort, surgery.
Sweating is also controlled by the ANS and the cause of hyperhidrosis has been traced to overactivity in the sympathetic component, as opposed to the parasympathetic component, of the ANS.
There are other causes of flushing and sweating. Some people sweat excessively because they are obese or they may be suffering from an overactive thyroid gland. Menopause is another obvious cause of both flushing and sweating. Flushing and sweating can also be prominent physical symptoms associated with the mental health condition known as social phobia. Flushing is almost never due to a serious medical condition with one notable exception, which is the rare condition known as carcinoid syndrome.
Medication may also give rise to flushing. The list of possible culprits includes various hormonal treatments for prostate cancer; gylceryl trinitrate, which is used in the treatment of angina; tamoxifen, which is used in the treatment of breast cancer; raloxifene, which is used for treating osteoporosis; calcium channel blockers, which are used to treat high blood pressure and chlorpropamide, which is used for treating diabetes and can cause flushing if the person takes alcohol concurrently.
In a shallow fresh water pond that has lots of vegetation
This is very bad! Your turtle is on his way to dying): they are not supposed to get brown spots on the bottom of their shell): soryy get a new one and make sure its not painted! they live longer (:
actually, yes...it is alright that your turtle is shedding it's shell. that means it is getting bigger. Look at it as if it were a little child. Children grow out of clothes so they need to go get new one...well turtle grow out of their shell but instead of getting a new one(besides their shell is part of their body...it is like a bone) they just shead to make more room for them to grow.
Yes, one can have a painted turtle as a pet. The real question might be, should you have a painted turtle as a pet? Painted turtles are beautiful and engaging creatures. In some parts of the country, they are endangered. In other places, their populations are at risk and declining. It is my opinion, as a painted turtle owner and a veterinarian, that painted turtles are best left in the wild.
That said, if you have your heart set on a pet painted turtle, there are a few things to keep in mind. All pet turtles require extremely clean water, although they are naturally dirty creatures. They must have UVA and UVB lamps. The bulbs are somewhat expensive and must be changed annually. Turtles need a source of steady heat. Although they can hibernate outside, they cannot survive long term at a chilly (60-74) temperature. Turtles can't just be fed "turtle pellets." They need at least some live food, plants and some prey. They must have an appropriate basking area. They require an excellent filtration system and regular cleaning. Most importantly, they need a BIG tank or pool. Personally, I believe it is downright cruel to keep an adult painted turtle in any enclosure less than 75 gallons. It's the equivalent of you being kept in a closet for your entire life. My turtle's tank is 150 gallons. This weighs a lot.
Finally, if you really want a painted turtle, please consider rescuing one. They live a long time, upwards of 40 years if they are properly cared for. One can often find free turtles on craigslist and various rescue organizations.
The process of turning into bone is called ossification.
No it dosent have the equipment needed for the painted baby turtle
When she starts to deliver, mom will hunch over and start moving around a lot. Usually, she will have all of the babies in her nest, but she might also have them in different areas in the cage. Don't worry, though, she will gather them up and bring them back. If you get a good look, you might see her deliver one. They come out head first and feet first. It doesn't matter, so don't worry about it. Mom will take care of herself and her new litter.
No. And neither do adult ones. And neither do toads. Warts are caused by viruses spread primarily person to person, through physical contact and exposure to common facilities like showers and bathtubs.
the scientific name for a gopher turtle is gopherus ployphemus
