That opening is its navel - did you notice some " redness" near the " opening/scar "


Thats why I ask for more information - don't want to jump to anything !!

i've been following since V4 since i got my turtles, and would like to contribute, but i don't have the experience to share since i'm still very much a beginner.

i have had my fair share of turtle mishaps and death as well...but so far surviving.

Just sharing my post in primitive fish thread

Casualty in turtle tank : The pump wire being bitten by Fly the PNT. Naughty guy indeed. When i touched the water, it feels like an electric shock! I tried several times and still the same. Tell u.. it hurts. Surprisingly the PNT and all feeder fishes seem normal, no sign of stress let alone shocks.

I tried to nurse the wounded wire by applying thick tapes, but to no avail, still feels electricity in water. Well, maybe its time for a new pump. Or i'll just use normal powerhead pump (for top filters). Lower flowrate though sad.gif

Currently on powerhead pump :

They dont really feel anything due to them not connected to " earth wire " we are standing on the ground thus the " shock " pass thru us to go underground !!

Water has sipped thru the breakage into the wire , u need to dry the whole thing for at least a week before reusing if not you will still feel the shock !! Getting a new pump is still best choice .

Thanks. Thats what i thought too, being an earth wire is a terrible experience indeed! shocking.gif

Yea i'm drying the pump up now. Will leave it be for a week or two. Then maybe try applying electric tape with PVC solvent. In the meanwhile i'm using a normal powerhead pump as in last picture. Tank running as usual with lower flowrate pump, reducing current speed a little.

Hi all, I have 2 terrapins the size is half an adult hand and 2 younger terrapin the size about 50cent coins. And today I found out one of the young terrapin died and another younger terrapin shell is dented and it's tail is hurt. Is it because the 2 elder terrapin are hungry that's why they bit the young ones?

Why dont you try pandanus fruits ( naturally occuring ) or some figs - actually most fruits thats " colourfully enough " are eagerly taken !!

Hi All Sifus,

icon_question.gif

I would like to find out the type of vegetables/ diet suitable for star tortoise.

So far, what I can find out from the internet cannot or not easily available in wet market & supermarket.

I have been feeding my star tortoises with Mazuri, sawi, romaine lettuce, etc.

Any help will be appreciated.

Cheers.. biggrin.gif

If you walk around your neighbourhood, you can find alot of extra things they can eat.

Try the cactus pad, hibicus flower and leaves. They also eat bermuda grass (can self grow), weeds and bunga kertas leaves.

Don't give kangkung. You can try to give some french beans (but not too often). Usualy stars will love to eat french beans.

u can try a small slice of banana or papaya too. (not often).

We feed our star tortoises (and sulcata) mazuri daily (cause lazy to get fresh vege all the time. they are still small and they eat very little).

when give fresh vege they eat sawi, romaine, sometimes french beans, long beans, four angle beans, hibiscus leaves (our neighbour has). They don't like cactus pad but it's supposed to be good for them.

Sometimes let them graze in garden and eat whatever they like. they like some purple flower weed. Not sure what is that. always eat that.
