Wintering Pond Turtle
How can i keep my POND water turtle alive through the winter?
Is the turtle outside or inside? Pond turtles that are outside in winter
need water deep enough that it won't freeze, preferably with mud that the
turtle can burrow into, where they can hibernate. If you are keeping the
turtle inside you don't need to do anything special; turtles kept warm
during the winter usually don't eat very much, but otherwise should be fine.
