I found the picture on the interrnet. but its the same type of turtle as i have.

i have 2 tiny tiny turtles. they don't eat the turtle food they gave at the pet store. i've been asked to feed them raw fish, but i don't know if thats going to be okay. now, one of them has white stuff near one eye. he hasn't opened this eye since i brought him home. they are really tiny, an inch or so. and i'm not sure what kind of a turtle it is. they haven't eaten in 5 or 6 days since i brought them home. what should i do?

You have to identify your tortoise and then you will know what to feed it.

My turtles are the same type . They were under an inch when I got them 3.5 years ago. Now they are about 6-7 inches. They eat anything carrots, cucumbers, raw fish , snails and aswell as turtle food . But they don't eat anything for couple of months during winter.

I love my tortoise so much. I got it when it was 2 weeks old. My friend breeds them, or she used to. she's almost 1 1/2 already and she is about 3-4in.
How do I know if she's male or female??? I say she's a girl, but who know.. :) The food I give her is calld - Wardley Reptile Sticks. She didn't want them at the beginning, but she likes it know. Plus it's fortified with calcium!!! :)
so how can I tell if she's a male or female??? Thanks!

by: Brandy

I have two of the same turtles. they eat live small goldfish and dried shrimp. They only like certain types of turtle food. you just got to try different types of food to find what they like.

identifying your turtle
by: Shelly

1. This looks like a red eared slider.
2. The white stuff by the eye sounds like there is an eye infection. You should take that turtle to the vet and completely clean the tank.
3. I found you this page with lots of information about your pet. I hope it helps you to get going.

Keep it slow and steady.

PS adding a photo is always a good idea.
