you have a right to be concerned about your sons health. if you are going to get a turtle for your son ask the shop owner if the turtle had a jab to protect people from salmonella if not get a vet to give the turtle a jab before you buy one. Sorted!

im more of a lizard expert and i have 2 turtles among my monitor lizards
and they are sideneck turtles, and i am posotive he wont get salmonella if he washes his hands now and again
red eared sliders, are very unlikely to transfer salmonella

my turtle died just 5 minutes ago
we buried him in the front yard
how long do they live?

turtles and lizards are extremely robust alana and they live up to 50 years or more
and terrapins live at least 50 years, but babies are very hard to raise u need a filter and u need a low nitrate lvl so make sure u dont have a lot of algae so u need snails or algae eater fish, once u have lowered ur amount of algae get somthing called a clown loach, its a large cleaner fish very robust very efficient eaters
but u gotta make sure ur algae lvl is low and they are nocturnal so ull need a rock or log for them to hide under, they shud serve u well also one reason is that there was too much algae in ur tank and the nitrate may have killed the turtle to reduce algae dont keep ur heat lamp off more often
only like 8:00 am to 8:00 pm
that shud reduce algae and ur turtle casualties algae and water quality might be factors, make sure ur turtles have somewhere to hide from ur heat lamp and make sure ur water temp is 70-85

i have two turtles and have 4 kids young ones too. we have had them for two years. just as long as you wash his hands after touching them and keep the living area clean. it should be ok.

I bought a poor turtle in Tunisia cause it was being put in the sun and put under incence,tapped under the head and all the other things my turtle hates. It was sooo small the size of a babies palm. We cared for it and we never got sick. It runs all over the house.We didnt worry at all. It is a land turtle. 

Name: priya | Date: Aug 28th, 2006 9:03 AM

No, dont worry, make sure you just dont let him have it in his mouth and make him wash his hands after playing with it.

Just be sure to wash your hands after handling it and you'll be fine.

Oop sorry Libby I addressed my reply to you, it should have been directed towards Jennyhill. However.... as for your question there could be several reasons why your turtle is not eating, you may want to check with a vet. Good luck keep us posted.
