Just arrived! We got in 40 of the cutest and smallest baby short-necked turtles. A Baby Turtle, what an Awesome gift for your kids.
The following are interesting facts about our adorable little turtles:
Turtles are omnivores, meaning they need both vegetables and meat. A stable diet consists of balanced pellets, crickets, worms and vegetables. Feed these babies daily, and adult turtles 2 to 3 times a day. In our store we sell high quality turtle pellets and frozen turtle food and turtle vegetables. We have everything your turtle will need.
For your turtle you will need a tank at least 2 feet long. You will need a UV light unit to stimulate vitamin D3 into the turtles systems. This allows them to absorb calcium because without this they will develop a soft shell. Use a heater to keep water temperature to around 24 degrees. A filter is important because turtles produce a fair amount of waste.
A dock is an area out of water for your turtle to rest and get some air. Add calcium blocks as supplement and a turtle dome which cleans the water and removes odours. Add a turtle conditioner and chlorine neutralizer to any new water you put in the tank. The pH level for a turtle must be above 7.0 if it is any lower we recommend using Tropical Balance to bring up the pH level.
We have all these products in our store. We also sell tank set ups for your turtle that come with all the basics.
