Meet 12-year old Jojo! Jojo is ready to find her forever home!

Turtles are long lived animals that require daily care and attention. They can live up to 50+ years and will require owners who are committed to keeping them happy and healthy.

Adult Turtles need approximately 80-120 gallon aquariums per animal, depending on the sex. This can be achieved with a large aquarium or a preformed pond, depending on the location in the home.

A large external filter which should ideally turn the volume of the water over twice per hour is one of the essentials to have. UV light is extremely important for them as it mimics the sun, which has an immediate effect on their natural behaviour, skin and shell health and helps them absorb calcium into their bodies, which we as caregivers add to their diets.

Water temperature should be 72 to 76 deg with a dry area and basking spot in the high 80’s.

Proper research should be done before deciding if a turtle is the right fit for your home, lifestyle and family. Please email [email protected] for more information on turtles and turtle care!
