I have 2 yellow bellied sliders about 5-6 years old. They are in a large tank in my living room but i would like to move them to a pond outside. I've read all the rules and dos and donts for turtle tanks outdoors and will follow them all.
I was wondering if there was turtle owners anywhere in the uk with there own turtle ponds, as the uk weather is not the best for turtles and I wanted to know how they where getting on.

You can take them in if it gets too cold. Some people use specific outdoor heaters.
