xcristina she's friendly only with me..even my partner got bitten..once from the finger and once from toe :D I think she's little bit feminist :D

devilduck thank you and yesterday was first "spa treatment" for her. I saw this video and then asked vet about it.

Bobo hisses at my fiance when he takes her out to her feeding container, though she's usually the sweetest girl in the world :lol: but today she hissed at me as well... :roll: I think they recognize everyone, they're pretty smart and also fast learners :)

NIce pics! There should never be a need to cut or trim the nails. There is a lot of flesh in there, so it would be painful!

xcristina yes they seem pretty smart. My turtle won't hiss at my partner but she doesn't trust him either, she always giving him this "hmmm" look.

Kansasslider youre welcome ;)

steve I know there should never be a trimming nails, but her nails were very long and she had painful to walk also I trust this vet and his decisions. Right now I'm building a new basking platform and ramp. New ramp have a sandstone for natural claw trimming/filing.

And like the tradition is ...more pictures

This is every morning quality time...I drink coffee...she sits on windowsill and looks out.

New basking platform ;)

That is just... lovely! I wish Bobo would stay just as calm and sweet watching out the window...
The basking platform looks great. Are you sure she won't try to bite and swallow the pebbles?

xcristina I will do my best to give her what she deserves. She has already tried to nibble the pebbles but I rigidly secured these whit silicone.
Sometimes I wonder...is there something she won't try to eat? :roll:

Looks very nice. If the ramp is acrylic, then the silicone won't hold it very well. You'll need to keep an eye on it to see how it holds up.

Yeah you're right Steve. Also Padfoot tore one stone away from the edge and I changed the ramp right away. Now it's made like xcristina's Bobo have (acrylic and storage box) and it works well. :wink:
Basking place is same and luckily she don't show any intrest biting these stones.
Few pictures also :roll:
