The best freshwater turtle site I've found yet. Definitely the place to go for pet aquatic turtle information. Aquatic turtles are often purchased with little to no advance research, and pet stores lie flagrantly about their care. They often grow much larger, and require far more equipment, than people remotely imagine. As a result, these are the reptiles that wind up in rescues the most frequently. If you want a RES, consider adopting.
