Clever Gardening Technique

Signs of Turtle Trouble
If you have adopted a turtle or tortoise please be gentle to your new hatchling or adult. They do not like disruptions -- once they get used to an area, do not to move things around. Watch for signs that your adoptee is in trouble -- runny nose, swollen eyes, a change in eating or evacuation habits, shell changes -- all are indications that your tortoise or turtle needs help.
