    I lacked the experiance to know this at the time and when it became active again, it broke it's toe while moving around. It then got infected, and just about went septic. After intensive research, I amputated the toe, as bone was quite visable. I suspect more than nails being to long causing this, but it is the best theory I have on it. To amputate the toe, I cleaned the area, sprayed the foot with bacteen, and removed the toe. I then raped the foot, and secured it to the side of the shell, changing these bandages daily and keeping the area sterile. I care a great deal for my turtles but find myself unable to care for them when i ship to basic training. I am in Envansville Indiana. You seem to be a reasonable individual with a wealth of knowledge on turtles and a large quantity of turtles yourself. If you would be willing to take my animals into your care I would be very greatful. After several years in captivity, I dont want to drop them in the wild again. Any response is appreciated.

    My turtles for the moment are quite light and a little dry from the winter. They went through the process where they quit eating, but donot sufficiently slow down their matabolism enough to sustain themselves. A few years ago, when I first got them, one was extremely inactive and it's nails grew to be too long.

    Hi there, I am somewhat new to this forum, but have been looking around here for a while. I am somewhat experianced in turtle care, primarily land species, and have two eastern box turtles of my own. They are fairly small, around four to six inches from head to tail. I am 18 and graduating highschool soon. I will be shipping to basic training for the Army on July 16th.

    I would turn off her light, and if you can't close your bedroom door to keep the 3 year old out then I would put something in front of the tank like a sweater or book to block Rose's view of the room. You should try to give Rose some peace and quiet for a few hours... no stress at all!! Keep the kids AWAY. Give her some time to heal of she can. How did the kid get the net and Rose?
