UPDATES

August 15, 2019: Harley was moved to a “big kid” tank this week and they are using every inch of it to stretch out. This turtle has made leaps and bounds since coming to us!

August 1, 2019: Harley is doing great! We got our first fecal from this turtle, so things are progressing. We found no parasites in the fecal sample.
