Hi fellow turtle lovers, especially Red Eared Slider and Pink Belly Short Necked Turtle 🙂

I have received some questions regarding how to take care of Turtles.I AM NOT AN EXPERT AT ALL!! But I keep learning from my mistakes when I take care of my baby turtles….therefore, I may help you from my process of learning…or we can say “let’s learn together!”

After I received this twit by @Absolute4Droid :

@Kame_kroten @novroz I came across your blog and I need your help. My turtle (an RES, not sure of age as she’s a rescue) has ripped the skin connecting her shell to her right arm. Do you know how this happened? Or if it’ll heal on it’s own?

I decided to do what I have done in my personal blog. I create a page for anyone to ask anything about their RES or YBSNT. Once again I NEED to mention that I am not an expert.

To get better advice please visit Red Ear Slider.com.

before you start asking, please check this page/post first:

Turtle Fact : where you can read bits about turtles.

How to Train Your Turtle : Things I did to tame my turtles

Perawatan Kura-Kura : For those who can speak Indonesian

I hope we can help each other through this page. Feel free to give me good advice about taking care of turtle…I really appreciate that 🙂

    Hi I love your videos. They are so cute and adorable. I have two baby turtles less than 6 months old. How can I train them to climb my hands too?

    Thank you very much.

    HI, I have a new turtle and its just few days bringing her. She is not eating food since the day it came. What should i do? is it common in turtles that they need few days to get familiar to their environment??

      Hi Suryansh, sorry for this very late reply.

      It is very common for turtle to act like that. It needs adjustment. I hope your turtle is doing well now
