Choose Your Turtle
  1. Talk to the salesperson about different kinds of turtles and their specific needs.
  2. Decide which type of turtle you want:

    • Or a water turtle
  3. Pick up the turtle you have your eye on. Does it:

    • Have shiny eyes? That's a good thing, if it has crusty or dull eyes that is also a sign that it is unhealthy.

Tips

  • Choose a veterinarian who has a specialty in amphibians, reptiles, and other exotic pets and don't hesitate to ask them about your new turtle, even if the turtle isn't sick.
