:::An easy way of making sure turtles get enough calcium is to disolve a piece of chalk in the water, all you have to do is drop it into the water. Then every time you feed teh turtles they atomactically get calcium from the chalk. RES swallow by taking in water as they take in food because they can't just use their tongues like we can.
::OOPS! That was supposed to be the at the part where is says, "...every time you feed *teh* turtles..."
:::Anyway, hope this helps! :::
::what kind of chalk? thanks ::Kevin
I don't think it really matters, but anyway. I use the old classroom blackboard writing chalk. The thin stuff, not the big thick sidewalk chalk.
