My gaboon turtle

by Hannah-Jade

I got my gaboon (African side necked) turtle about 2 months ago,all seemed fine until i noticed that she was a little bit quieter than usual.There was nothing wrong with her its just she looked lonely as if she was hoping for a friend?I tried putting a mirror behind her tank so she could see her refelction but that didnt change a thing.Is it possible she is lonely and another turtle of her age,breed and sex would relieve this?

I am going to upload pictures shortly.

A tortoise friend won't make much difference. If you do get one, you'll have to have enough room for them to get away from each other.
