I take outside only when its sunny and there is no wind. Sam and Beth go out once a week because they dont live in my house, they live in my grand parents' s house.

Ilsa goes out about 6 times a week because she is very confortable with me, she never bites me, she usually fall asleep while im petting her shell, also because she has been with a dry docking treatment during one or two months.

Elvis and Luke are under vet treatment and the vet told me to take them out to spend some time under the natural sun light always weather let me xD and its been a spring week.

Always I tried to respect when they are in the mood or not, if not I dont usually take them out. For example Elvis and Ilsa climb on my hand when I offer to them, then I take them out and when I return then to theirs tank I give them a treat like a little mealworm or one comercial stick.

Baby Luke is much better, no more MBD, no more lack of vitamine A, no more parasites, but maybe gonna lose his tail due to a fungus infection. Going on monday to vet, also I have to decide his future: if he stay with me or if I look for a home with a good owner. Its hard because I want him to stay but also want to help saving other turtle lives... by now he stays with me till June, here is a pic.

My other turtles are ok, here is a pic of Elvis.

Yes, I have to take him to the vet in two weeks. If he is bigger vet will perform a surgery to take it out but he is to small.

Thank you!

I got some money so I bought a tank for Luke, he loves the tank. Also good news from the vet, Luke is 100% healthy :)

Also some weeks ago I caught an abandoned slider in a local public pond, I rescued her, take her to the vet, and the rehome her. Her owner sends me a pic of her once or twice a week. This girl is Trixie, and now has a second oportunity in life :msgreen:

My RES Elvis is also ok, he loves natural sun
