The note of Asian Leaf Turtle

If your turtle is the individual below 10cm, your turtle is not necessary to make the deep place in the tank.

Asian Leaf Turtle rises to the land well and turtle like sunlight bath. Therefore, as for the land place of the cage larger one is good.

The turtle which I have raised often eats the feed even at the land place. Therefore, when making the formula feed eat which absorbed the water into the turtle at the land place it is.

Turtle eats with anything. But, the food which is cooked to the turtle you do not have to give. It becomes the cause the turtle dying quickly.

Because Asian Leaf Turtle becomes large, the tank which is larger than the 90cm tank becomes necessary, probably will be.
