Yes Steve she's very helpful.
Today she was enjoying the first hot Sun. We sat in the window for 20 minutes and as you can see, she enjoyed it fully and shut the eyes.

PS! As you can see there is still a problem with the claws of the rear legs..they are long and she don't trim them herself. Any recommendations?

They do look a little long, but I don't think I would be concerned about it. There is no safe way to trim claws, as far as I know.

Jep I know that there is no safe way except the natural way...walking on a ground.
I've tried so far sandstone ramp but she started bite pieces out of it and I removed it.
I have to look bigger sandstones for her tank...unfortunately so far no luck with that.

Maybe a pumice stone to soften a pointy nail? Her front claws look pretty sharp.

Yes front claws are sharp. Pumice stone is a good idea. Thank you :roll:

Hi everyone.

So far this years summer has been very rainy windy and cold. But finally yesterday was one day that was warm ( 27°C) and lots of Sun.
So we decided to go for visit uncle and grandma. They live 10-20 min. car ride from us and they have big and turtle friendly garden as you've been noticed from previous posts.

Little memories from this beautiful day.

Can not be?! Or is it?! Strawberry???

Strawberry smile.

Do not tell my grandmother about this.

These pictures are too wonderful! The ones with you and Padfoot both in the picture are particularly special in how personal they are. I think this is the kind of relationship we all want with our turtles. :)

Do you have her out all the time? It's amazing how calm she is outside of her aquarium.

Hi
I apologize because I have been away for a long time from this forum. :oops:

4 February we celebrated three years we've been together. That was the day when we first met.
During this time we both have been learning a lot of each other. The most important thing she's taught me is patience and obstinacy. And I think that this is also the reason why we do so well together.
This kind trusting relationship she has only with me and my partner.

turtlenojutsu she spends her time outside aqarium erery day. Right now in Estonia is winter and snowing and her outside time means that she's walking around the flat. In summer we go outside and enjoy the sun. :)

Some pictures:

Heloo everyone :)
Long time no seen.
I just wanted to say that summer is here and finally weather is warm outside and I can take sunbath under the real Sun. Just love it so much.
I know how much you all love pictures and I love when human photographs me...so here I am...sun-bathing.

Have a warm and sunny summer and see ya all soon ;)
