They don't need too much water, they must have a rock or summat so that they can get out of the water or they can drown.

Also they stink to high heaven unless the bowl/tank is cleaned out every few days.

In an emergency feed it a few garden worms or even goldfish food until you can get to the pet shop.

had the official reclean of terrapin tank for spring now, reheated the water, taken temp etc. only problem is they are supposed to lose 1/3 rd of their weight during hibernation, this fvcker grew!!!! just been handling him for the first time in four months, I swear you would never win an arm wrestle with this fella. noooo: He is huuuuuuuuuge!!!! cant afford to keep upgrading tanks/cages etc. why cant they all just stay babies.

this is why i dont have kids.

If it was dead it wouldn't grow !

Stop feeding it and then preserve it when it dies. You would hardly be able to tell the difference  rubschin:

That was lucky!!! came home to find fluffy floating on his back and though he head died.  sad24:

Seems he had tipped over and the water level was too low for him to turn back. I picked him out of the tank and he did the most humongous fart!!!!!!!!!!

All is well now though.  Thumbs:

Good job the water level was low, otherwise, with that level of jet propulsion, he'd've been through the side of the tank!    eeek:

Just cleaned him out. he swallowed a whole slice of bacon while he was in his baby tank. I made Apey babysit, he was frightened. He has shed some scales during winter, just realised the size of one scale is actually how big his whole body was when the cat spat him out on the kitchen floor.  eeek:

Tis that time of year again where I am constantly concerned that Fluffster is either sick or dead. I think he's getting pissed of with me as everytime he tries to settle into hibernation I take him out of the tank for a health check. This year it seems he is going to sit on his rock out of the water and not move. This is a new approach.  rubschin:
