Hi! Not even a week ago I took in an African sideneck aquatic turtle. I have never had a turtle and did not plan on it but the living conditions were so neglectful I had to.
I had to find out her breed through on line research and I am pretty positive I have that right. African sideneck. I was told she was a female and around 5-6 years old. If anyone who knows can confirm any of this, that would be great though!
Every day since we've got her we (my 19 year old son and I) have been researching from dusk to dawn trying to get her everything she should have jut didn't. The day we got her we got her a uvb bulb which she didnt have. She also had no place to get fully out of the water or bask. We already ordered a new canister filter and it should be here friday. Anyway on my mind this morningnis her skin coloring. It is very ligjt. I read about a fungus she could have but it doesnt seem fuzzy as described? I just want to make sure anything she is auffering with, because of her previous living conditions, I can get on top of asap. So even though I havr a million questions and so much to learn.. right now I would like help making sure her skin isnt a sign of something bad and if it is how can i make sure what is wrong and how can i help her? And if you can help me confirm she really is a she would be great too!
Also I obviously need to attach a photo but everytime i try it says invalid file? Is there a trick to this?
