Terrapins as pets

Buying a pet and looking after it is a huge responsibility. As a pet owner you must make sure that your pet has somewhere suitable to live that allows them to express natural behaviours like they would in the wild. A correct diet and of course, lots of care and attention are essential. It is important to learn your terrapin’s normal activity level so you can pick up when this changes which may indicate a possible health problem.
