So here's Frankie.  We don't really know what sort of enclosure that she should be having.  We do know that she is water turtle so the rest of her tank is water and those are the only rocks that she has in it.  If anyone can give some suggestion as to what could help improve her life it would be great. =]  And is it okay that her shell is peeling?  I asked the bf about it and he said that is how she grows.

SM, she's a yellow belly slider. She'll get 8" if she's really a boy, 12" if she's really a female.

Mimzy hit the nail on the head with the filter issue. Get one that's rated for double the tank space. I have a rena filstar x3, it's rated for 175 gallons and I only have a 55 gallon tank, lol. My tank stays awesomely clean and non-smelly.

I built an ATBA (above tank basking area) for my turtle, Torti. It's made out of plexiglass, silicon, and love and it makes it so I can fill the tank up all the way for maximum swimming area, and so she has a lot of room to chill out out of the water. This is an old pic... Torti's so much bigger now!

Ohhhhh Zoologist Frankie's got to be a girl because she's about the same size length wise as Skipper when Skips goes into her hunched ball. I like the set up you have and I'll have to look into the filter. Once we move we won't be able to clean her tank the way we do now and it's honestly a lot of work. She's in a 20 gallon tank right now. And by taking a look at your set up she's in wayy too small of a tank for her size. I'll have to look into maybe making a plexiglass tank instead of buying a bigger glass one. Thanks Mimzy and Zoologist for your help. =]

We are currently learning medical procedures in my clinical class that meets twice a week! The teacher wants us to understand what the patients are going through and if they ask us "Have you done this?" the answer will be "yes." o_O

So we all have to do a fecal occult test.. and we have learned hearing and seeing types of procedures. I got my ear flushed out in class and it was really weird and fun.

I'm pretty much ahead in my homework, which means more time for spend with Chacha, more time to exercise, and play video games YAY!!!!!!

 

There have been so many pumpkins coming through my line at work. They are so heavy, and I am thankful that I wear a back brace, otherwise I would be in so much pain! A lot of my customers have been super helpful and helping me lift the pumpkins back in the cart. We cashiers are SUPER thankful for people that are helpful!

SM, if you're in a permanent residence you could think about making Frankie a pond? As long as it's deeper than 3' and has a muddy bottom she can stay out there year round since we have mild winters. You could build a big chicken wire cage around it and it could double as a run for Skipper  

(Actually, I may take this idea for my own.... hm... now to buy a house with a backyard...) 


Torti is in a 55 gallon and she's only 7 inches last time I measured. I want to buy her a bigger tank! Ideally I want to make her a pond, but that is ways away. I long for the day I don't have to lug her tank around every single time I move (usually yearly, ugh!) 

I really like my rena filstar. I've been using them in various sizes since I had Torti, and been giving the smaller ones to my dad for his salt water tanks. The one I had for her when I was 17 still works! It's 6 years old. I would suggest the bigger, the better. It'll save you more time and money in the long run. I have 3 baskets in mine with 3 different filter pads, carbon, and stars to catch good bacteria. I double up on the fine mesh pads so it keeps the water cleaner. ALSO! I use sand instead of rocks. all the gunk sits on top and is scooped up by the filter so it doesn't get caught underneath rocks. and if she eats it she just poops it out, no big deal. 

The basking area cost me ~$20 to make. They cut the plexi glass for me at the store, and the only big cost was the ramp which is a zoomed turtle dock.  


In other news FINN IS ADORABLE AND I LOVES HIM. He's playing around with a cardboard box and got it stuck on his head. of course he pulled it off right as I got the camera out >_<

Zoologist I wish I could. My bf's parents have an old fish pond in their backyard but since we have foxes, raccoons, and hawks I'm afraid they're going to get her. Finn sounds adorable!

The bf and I are a little worried about Skipper. She's been showing some symptoms of a gut that's slowing down. We're trying to work with her to get her out of this and to get her GI tract moving some more with pineapple and lots of belly rubs. =/ It's so frustrating because she'll do these real healthy big poos and then these real small ones a little later. If she's not better by tonight I might just stay home with her tomorrow and see if I have to take her in for an emergency vet visit.

TL- turtles are AWESOME! And yes, they can live like 60-80 years if cared for properly. I knew when I got mine at 16 that it would be a life long commitment, and it's going to be pretty cool to be like, 70 and still have my pet from my teens

My mom used to make apple sauce in the fall! it's one of my favorite memories with her. It was soooo muchhh workkk though. Kudos to you for putting in the effort.


SM- that's why i suggested building an enclosure around it. I am going to do that when I have a backyard. Or if we're still in Florida I'm going to buy one of those houses that has the funky enclosed backyards. So weird. I've never seen those before until I moved down here. Enclosed backyard means turtle pond, cats can play outside with no problems, and a bunny run with no dangers!

Can you sneak some pumpkin into her diet to help her pass poos more easily? Can't you also use vaseline? If you want I'll make up some pumpkin biscuits and send them to you. I got cute little bat cookie cutters I've been wanting to try out. They'd be pumpkin, banana, and pellets.

TL those look amazing! And I personally like homemade applesauce more than store bought. I've gotten into the habit of making my own too but in small quantities since the bf hates applesauce. (He is so weird. xP) Can I just reach in and steal those cookies? They look sooooo good. I love little Frankie. You wouldn't think that turtles could be people animals but she really is. She'll let us hand feed her and pet the top of her head. She's really great.

Zoologist the previous turtles they had back in the pond were released because an animal had ripped into the wire around the pond they had put up. =/ Maybe I can talk to the bf and his brother-in-law to see what we can do.

I've apoointed a vet visit for Bosse on wednesday. He has been itching and scratching behind and on his ears alot lately (to the point where the hair is thinning a lot behind there), as well as itching a lot around on his entire body So I've appointed an all round wellness check, with a check for ear mites or other causes for his itching.
Yesterday when I was going to clip his nails I also descovered he has broken a nail It looked as though it had bled. So the vet is going to check out his nail too.
Hope everything turns out okay.

Good luck vibes to Bosse.

TL those all look so good. I've never had handmade applesauce but it sounds yummy!

SM- we rescued a red ear slider in a mcdonalds parking lot when I was a kid. He/she was the size of a quarter and no wildlife in the area so we think bird dropped her. Well we raised her to a good size then released her in a wildlife sanctuary that my mom worked with where we knew the habitat was right for her. We named her "big mac"

I'm taking sweets back to my usual vet. New vet sucked. She even grabbed her by the skin on her neck. From that point on I didn't like her. But she also didn't look inside ears or mouth. Just felt everything. And did a lot of unnecessary poking at her abdomen and then asks when she was spayed. *facepalm*. The doctor that's good at that office had an emergency (wife went into labor!) and we didn't feel like we could walk out but I can't go back there even if it was to see him because the possibility of getting her again is terrifying. Poor sweets. I'm worried she might have ear mites too because she is scratching her ears a lot too. I know my old vet will catch if it she does. It's worth the longer drive! If she does have ear mites, is it unreasonable to go back to other vet and ask for refund? That's what bf wants to do. $60 for a horrible check-up bugged him and I don't blame him.

ChaCha - I got a couple of pumpkins today. The guy just told me to leave them in the cart. They didn't need to weigh them, they were all $4.
