Thanks so much! I am lucky enough to own a yellow bellied slider, so at least i know a little something about aquatic turtles. I have been using the ZooMed brand food, but if recommended i can use ReptoMin. ("Buster" also loves earthworms and crickets) I had no idea that turtles were so tiny when they hatch! I am so excited. I figured they would probably be some kind of slider, but there are also a lot of those "musk" turtles (or razorback turtles) in the particular area. I was not sure if they laid hard shelled eggs as well. Well, i will let you know what they are when they decide to make the Grand Entrance!
