The Turtle Room

Click on the small pictures to see larger versions.

Three pictures are put together to show the main painted landscape wall before the tanks were put in.

The room with tanks. Turtles in the tanks shown are Cuora galbinifrons.

This is a diagram of one of the turtle tanks (click on it to see a larger version). The tanks are acrylic, and about 2' by 4 1/2'.

The water end of the tank has a false bottom, a technique borrowed from frog keeping. Since the goal for turtle care is to keep the water cleaner by letting the coco-peat sift through the plastic grid, I have left off the fine screen that usually goes over the grid. The pictures above this show real tanks of this type.
