Main Topic: Buoyancy issues in turtles
We all like to be heading along on an even keel, even turtles. This week Mark and Brendan discuss buoyancy issues in turtles (freshwater and seawater). Some chelonians have ingenious methods to regulate buoyancy, however we tend to see unwanted buoyancy issues in pet turtles. We cover the basics for determining the cause of these issues and how to address them.
