  1. Thank you so much for this page!!!! I just happened to stumble upon it but I’m sharing it on as many FB groups re pets and turtles tt I can – it’s so important for people to get the right info as too many RES are being abandoned in SGP 😓 and the vast majority of abandoners don’t realise it’s ILLEGAL to just release terrapins when they get too big or their care takes more time and effort.


  2. Thanks for this site. Wish my wife read your articles before buying terrapins for my kids. One of the terrapins is now not eating for a week and has cloudy eyes. Would you know of any vet that can help it?


    1. Hi Jon. I have only experienced going to Animal Doctors, but you will have to call them first as vets specialising in reptiles are not in daily. You can enquire with vets near you by calling them and asking on their area of expertise. Many vets have little to no experience with turtles. Your turtle seems to be ill, I cannot advise much without knowing your turtle set up. Try feeding it with bloodworm or dried shrimp to up their appetite.


      1. Thanks. The Animal Doctors didn’t have a vet who can see my terrapin. I ended up going to Island Vet at Jurong East. It is now on antibiotics and let’s hope it thrives after the medication runs its course. What I found interesting was how the other terrapin living in the same setup is very active and feeding well… Will try out bloodworm or dried shrimp. Your site is really a great resource and I’ve very grateful for your sharing.


      2. I’m glad you found a suitable vet! To be frank, because these turtles are bred an large numbers, the health of the turtles at the point of purchase is never certain. It could have nothing to do with your set up, you may just have picked a sickly turtle to begin with. Hope the turtle reaching peak of health soon!
