>>me and my new wood turtle are having a difficult time acclimating to eachother- i got a waters edge water bowel that is flooding the tank- is an inch of water ok?seems like it might be hard to clean-i am using ice to drive up humiidity but that is not working- what should i use as a water bowel? he is now in the course of knocking a plant saucer over- thanks,
>>zach
>>i am getting a misting system next week but still need a decent waterbowel-
>>zach


waters edge bowls are worthless for a ca wood. you need to provide him with a deeper bowl, I used small rubbermaid tubs with the substrate deep enough up to the lip of the tub. they need deep substrate to dig & hide.get some cheap fake plants from walfart, stick those in the substrate like trees. ice? no. get a mist spray bottle and mist it a few times a day. and remember heat is important
