General Care Discussion :: Turtle's Weight

Taking care of your turtle's overall health.

Post Posted: Wed Jan 04, 2017 9:11 pm   Turtle's Weight

Everyone talks about their turtles health referring to the state of their eyes, shell condition, skin condition etc. No one seems to refer to weight. I keep track of my turtles weight weekly and I believe it's a good indicator of overall health. Does anyone weigh their turtles?

A few do, but you're right that no one really keeps track. There was one member posting regular updates, not sure how a small sample will help. Add yours as well! I think I'll keep better measurements this year too.
