Agreed, WC are HARD to switch over to mainstream food anyway. I tried the catch and keep, but i could help but feel sorry for the little guy. CB ar born in rubbermaids and thats all the know, and are quite comfortable for them, while a WC may remain highstrung, Nervous, and defensive. I would release him.
BTW at 4:11pm you said:
'After doing some research i found him to be a cooter! He is 10 inches long. Hes so precious. Does anyone have any information on keeping them? I plan on having him in a 50 gallon pond.'
Then at 4:21 you said:
'I know alot of information on turtles, and i have done my re-search on him, hes doing great... '
*WOW, I wish i were that good with my herps.......*
THEN at 4:43 you said:
'You have no idea! I have done my research, hes being treated for parasites'
*DANG, I wish i lived that close to my herp vet!*
Dont you see that the info you are giving us just doesnt line up?!?!?!?
I got a bunch of snakes and a bunch of guns
