Are you thinking about getting a turtle? When I was a kid I had two water turtles that I was crazy about and they are still one of my favorite kinds of pets. It was fun to watch them crawl over the stones and plants in their terrarium and then plop into the water for a swim. I used to be mesmerized by these little guys, but like other reptile owners at the time I learned about the care they needed through trial and error.
If you’re ready to adopt a turtle of your own, the new petMD® ReptileCare Center has the information you’ll want to know in order to keep your pet safe and give it the proper care it needs to thrive in your home. The Reptile Center will even help you research the best type of turtle for your lifestyle. That way there won’t be any surprises about the type of food, housing or equipment they need.
