Another turtle found by whitebaiters. This medium sized female was fished out of the Kaiapoi river by whitebaiters. She has now been rehomed :) More available for adoption to the right environment/home :)

Female turtles will only be re homed to someone with an appropriate pond or tank and accessories. You need a wide tank that is AT LEAST 250Litres of water, ie/ 5ft long (150cm), a large external filter, heater with a guard, a UVB light AND a source of heat over a dry basking area. You DON'T want a lid on the tank, unless its a mesh lid, as glass etc will cause many problems for the turtle. Small stones in a turtle tank are a big killer of turtles so a bare bottom tank is best. If it doesn't work out for any reason the turtle must be returned to Turtle Rescue. NOT to be sold on TradeMe or any other auction site. Female turtles lay eggs and this needs to be accommodated by her new owner.
All support and information will be provided to ensure the turtles welfare and care is appropriate and to help you out with any questions or concerns you may have about caring for your new pet turtle :) See
'Turtle rescue and rehoming' FaceBook pg or www.turtlerescue.co.nz for more info on what you need to set up a turtle environment correctly. Donna will need to see proof that you have an appropriate tank etc before you can adopt a turtle and that you understand turtles live up to 40 years and need care for their whole life!
A donation towards turtle rehabilitation is welcomed.
Can be transported (at new owners cost) via the petbus to other parts of the country.
