Turtle Care

To keep your turtle healthy there are some basic husbandry requirements that need to be adhered to  (such as water quality,  adequate ultra violet light, food etc.)

All you need to know is fully explained in Craig Latta's comprehensive "Care Guide for Australian Freshwater Turtles in Captivity" and should be followed closely.
