Trimming A Turtle Beak
by: Shelly

Yes, sometimes a turtle's beak will grow to the point that it interferes with eating. A vet can trim that for you. If you ask, the vet may well show you what to do so you can do it yourself in the future. I would have a vet do the job the first time, though.

Keep it slow and steady.
