Are Pet Turtles Easy To Take Care Of?

Not everyone likes cuddly, furry pets. Some people like the idea of having a water pet, but want something they can handle a little. That is the joy of turtles. They are not all that difficult to take care of, either. However, you will need to do a little research about how to prepare their environment, what they need, and what to feed them.

All turtles spend most of their time in the water

. However, it is imperative for you to give them somewhere to climb out of the water if they choose to. You will want a terrarium for them, and not a small one, either. Even though they are pretty small, they still use a lot of space. Another issue that turtle owners face is keeping the water clean. Make sure to invest in a very good filtration system, and ensure that you keep the filter changed at regular intervals. Water temperature is not as important, but you will need a heat lamp for them to bask under.

Feeding them is not as difficult, though. 4-5 times a week is often adequate, providing you feed them the right things. You can buy pellet turtle food which, providing you buy good quality food, should be sufficient.
