What kind of setup do they have outdoors? A pond or just a land area?

Sorry I didn't see your post. I have a pond outside.

another question... it's the other turtle. I noticed she has these fat bulges around her back legs when she tucks them in. She laid an egg about a month ago. Is it normal? They are soft when I touch them.

Here's a photo

She could be a little overweight.

Hi, Steve
just an update, the spot on the head is disappearing, and the one on the leg too. And the other turtle, I guess she was full of eggs. She laid 6 or 7 and the bulges went away. So it's better now
thanks for your help :)
