Road to Recovery for 6 Turtles

I rescued these guys off of craigslist. Their shells are in terrible condition and were picked at by the previous owner. They are all starting to learn to beg. Some of them are in their first shed. They are doing great so far!

It looks like they weren't given enough space. Weird to see turtles with no pyramiding, yet still bad shells!

Good on you!

They had no uvb or basking area, they had gravel, no filter, and no heater. The guy said feed them every two weeks so they dont get bigger!!!! :shock: They're getting reptomin and lettuce the size of their heads every other day. Theyre doing much better

Sadly, the majority didnt make it. After several vet visits, 2 of them made it. Those 2 are however doing extremely well, growing, and are happy turtles!
