Well yes and no. He lived another 5 years but then I moved to Las Vegas and the heat was too much I think. I don't know specifically but I know 5 years is short. He was a diamond back terrapin I am still crushed, he was so beautiful. It was like over 10 years ago.

I think thats a mostly aquatic turtle....I'm not too familiar with turtles...but I know the aquatic turtles are hard due to temp sensitivity...clean water..and uv...they require 100% dedication....

I was just told by my network of breeders that I killed him...that I scared him to the point of cardiac arrest...I opened up his cage and got him too fast..... he's 2.5 months old.......lesson to anybody raising babies...don't bust in a viv or cage too fast...this could happen.... I just checked on him he's sleeping in his colorful pjs...
