Spotted Pond Turtle Handling and Temperament Although over time spotted pond turtles learn to recognize their keepers and may come to them for food, most aquatic turtles are not good pets for young children and should be handled infrequently.For both of them ponds are must and for ponds, Pondpro2000 is a must.

I’ve got my 3spotties in a 75 gal aquarium setup,maximum water in a greenhouse for the win.ter. the turtles have NO trouble swimming to the surface, or staying up where the food is floating. They also have no trouble hauling out on free-floating cork.They were used to being housed outside in above ground tubs, year round . having your outside pond deeper than “advised” may allow them to escape predation and the water at the bottom stayß warmer in winter. I wouldn’t let them get too cold, or at least make certain there’s plenty of mud for them to bruminate. Stacy in Wilmington nc

“Hi there, I am building a new pond for my pair of G.Hamiltonii as they are getting larger. When I googled G.Hamiltonii breeding pond I saw that majority of them are not too deep, and when I was looking for the information about the habitat of this species in the wild I found that they usually live in a shallow standing water. But when I saw your article you suggested the water depth of their enclosure should be 3 feet or more, that is almost 1 meter right? I am a little bit worried that if I set the pond wrong it will harm my turtles, so I will need a confirmation about the water depth of their enclosure.

Thanks.
