TURTLES ROUTINE HEALTH CARE
Keeping your turtle healthy
The Eastern Long-Necked Turtle (Chelodina Longicollis) is the only species of turtle allowed to be kept in the ACT without a licence. The keeping of turtles requires a specific set-up and a significant amount of knowledge. Turtles can live for over 20 years in the wild!
Regular health checks
We recommend annual or twice annual health checks to ensure that hidden diseases do not become serious and to provide you with the latest information on caring for your turtle. We can provide reminders for this service.
