Hello everybody,
I just noticed that my turtles' cloaca was a bit reddish, is this normal?

Also,
- Is a water heater compulsory? because in the night, the water gets a bit cold.
- I noticed that he also yawned while he was basking, is this a sign of anything?

If it's RI, I've got that too, I visited the hospital yesterday for it. It's pretty scary and I hope he doesn't have it. :(

I don't know how to measure temperature of water.
Also, I'll try and take a picture of his *cough* cloaca

Any idea what caused this mark?
Sorry about the quality, i've got a old Iphone 4s. Haven't bothered to upgrade because it's still good.

Not sure about what I'm looking at, maybe is just some shedding skin on top?
