      Very cool! We don't have anything like that in my part of Washington so it's a lot of
      fun seeing them... thanks for sharing!

      This is the first baby painted turtle I've seen around here. I think he is really beautiful. We always have a lot of big Cooter's and Sliders laying eggs in the field in front of our house, and I often find babies making their way to the water. I mounted a log on some concrete blocks in the pond behind our house so I can watch them basking. Here is a picture of some of them through my small telescope. At times we have seen as many as eight of them lined up.

      That is so cool to be able to watch them bask. So peaceful & relaxing.

      Pls help! New red eared slider hatchling found

      Hi! I was wondering if you could help me with some questions I have about a new hatchling I found. My momís friend found a turtle in her yard (she thinks a bird dropped its egg or something) and she gave it to us because I have a tortoise I bought about 4-5 ish years ago. Since I wasnít expecting him I didnít have much preparation to do for his arrival. Heís a baby Red Eared Slider Turtle and I watched videos on things that I need to take care of him and bought some things for him on amazon. Right now, heís in a big glass jar like container with some filtered water and rocks and shells and Iím trying to feed him carrots and things until I get his food. The thing is I donít have a heater or anything for him, just a light that I use for my tortoise that Iím alternating between the two. Iím just worried about him and I donít know if I should leave the light on all the time since itís his only form of heat or what. I want to make sure Iím doing everything I can to keep him alive and happy, but Iím just worried that my Amazon things wonít come in time since heís such a fragile hatchling. Thank you!

      He needs to have sunlight for a healthy shell. Here is a site all about turtles: http://austinsturtlepage.com/
      It should tell you everything you need to know about turtle care. Good luck, and let us know how it goes. If you have a natural pond near you, go ahead and release him there. If he is healthy, then he is equipped to make it in the wild.
