where do australian murray short neck tortoise's sleep?
(eilzabeth south australia)
I live in south Australia I brought a fresh water murray short neck tortoise and it sleeps in a tank that's about 2 thirds full of water as it is only a baby the pet shops say it needs more water then land... as it gets to about 4 years of age i hear it needs more land then water but until then i have it living in a tank of mainly water. i only had it a few hours and now its about 1.20am its going to be sleeping soon so my question is if it sleep in water will it drown? .......is it to young to sleep out of water without drying up n dying ( as it is still to young to live the water for more then 30min)??????
so where dose it sleep??
on land or in water?
can it sleep in either?
i am also wondering if anyone knows whether the murray short neck tortoise need company or if there territorial?
i only have one at the moment but it seems to get loney
so wats best for it?
