They're so cute thanks for sharing. I'm thinking the first turtle may be a male you know... Big front claws compares to the second

Sorry these pics are kinda old, I haven't had a chance to take a new one yet, but they really haven't changes much.

That's what I thought at first too that aries was male, at that time I was on a turtle forum, they all kept telling me no, no, no they're both girls.

As soon as I can I'll take the new pics and you guys can tell me what you think, if you don't mind to that is .

No problem! We love reptiles, Jack is more so on the turtle side of things but I'm like an all round general reptile kinda person. I love crocodilians

Lovely, whether male or female! For those of us who are more than a bit
turtle ignorant, what are they? Red-eared sliders?

Live simply. Love generously. Care deeply. Speak kindly.
And never regret anything that made you smile

Lol, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were definitely awsome. :P My love lies with Tortoises though because they are terrestrial. I can't wait to get a Russian Tort!

Did you know there are some species of terrestrial turtles?

My musk turtles are pretty much 99.9% carnivorous. They get King British Turtle & Terrapin complete food, with bits of egg shell and cuttle bone. They have mealworms too and I've just started feeding them on smelt (the fish). I have to cut them up into small pieces though When they get to their full size they can have half a smelt, or maybe a whole one.

Ally eats Reptomin turtle sticks as her main diet, with the King British complete food too (for the gammerus and shrimps), mealworms, whole smelts and plenty of fresh fruit and veg

I used to feed reptomin to the turtle I used to have. The flunkers is a combo mix of shrimp, meal worms and pellets, so I think it pretty good for them.

Which fruits and veggies do you feed Daisy?

Really? I've heard of partial terrestrial turtles but not fully.

Yeah there are some though I can't for the life of me think what! I'll let you know when I remember haha.

We feed everything that is safe. She doesn't eat them often but we put them in just in case what turtle did you use to have? Jack got a video of Ally eating waxworms earlier. I'll let you know when it's on YouTube. It's pretty funny!
