My Red Eared Turtle is enjoying life by basking on a log, under the sun. All by itself. A kind of “social distancing”, shall I say? On that note, be safe everybody. We will pull through this tough time. My job has closed down for 2 weeks. So I am home, trying to lift my spirits by drawing, and keeping busy. I also plan to go outside and take in the warm sun, just like my turtle!

What are you doing to stay positive? Let me know :)

basking log for pet turtles

When caring for Turtles or any reptile, provide a spot for basking under a heat lamp and UV lamp. Even better, position the aquarium near a window for natural sunlight, if possible. In this video, I try out two kinds of log platforms – fake and real options, which turtles can enjoy and rest between swimming in the tank. Check out my video and enjoy!

red-eared turtle

December 7, 2009

A Red-Eared Slider climbing out to bask.  It is a chilly winter here, and I long for the warmth of the sun just like this turtle.
