Rescue Me ID: 17-02-12-00033Snapping Turtle

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Young Adult


    Spikey is a 5 year old snappping turtle that weighs 14 lbs. and still growing. Have had him since he was the size of a quarter. Have chronic arthritis and it is difficult to care for him now. He is very timid but still has his snapping turtle ways. Loves watching people. He is in a 40 gallon tank, but will probably need a bigger one soon. Can't let him out in the wild because he is domesticated. He eats dried shrimp and Reptomin turtle sticks.Clean his tank every two weeks. Love him very much, but with this arthritis it is very hard to give him the proper care that he needs.

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-28-00304Painted Turtle

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Young Adult


    Super friendly Painted Turtle named Bowser. Not sure of sex, have had it for about 2 yrs now since it was a hatchling. Was found abandoned inside a cracked aquarium by a pond, left for dead. I took it in and have been taking very good care of it. I am now traveling for work and do not have enough time to take care of it. He is still fed but it is hard to upkeep with the filtration and tank with little time. As stated previously, turtle is super friendly. Beautiful shades of green, yellow, red, and orange all over the skin. Lets you hold and pet it without any aggression. Love's being hand fed worms and shrimp. I am looking for someone who ... (Read More)will take very good care of this lil' guy/gal. Please contact me if interested. Thank you. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting Reptiles & More in Illinois
    Reptiles & More can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. Reptiles are interesting animals. Many types of reptiles and amphibians are kept as exotic pets. Snakes, turtles, iguanas, and frogs are popular examples. Keeping a reptile as a pet is a tremendous responsibility. Many reptile owners discover that owning a reptile is not as rewarding as they had hoped. Reptiles do not bond with people the way mammals can, and are sometimes neglected for that reason. Also, many people purchase young, small reptiles without being aware of or prepared for their eventual adult size. For example, Burmese Pythons are often bought as pets when they are about two feet long. However, many do not realize that Burmese Pythons are among the largest snakes in the world, with adults averaging 23 feet in length and weighing hundreds of pounds! There is now an established invasive population of Burmese Pythons in Florida due to pet owners releasing the snakes into the wild. Scientists believe these huge snakes will keep spreading out and will one day inhabit one third of the United States! Some owners are not prepared for the long lifespan of a pet reptile. Some species of turtles are known for their extreme longevity. Iguanas can grow to be six feet long and then live for 20 years. Sadly, many captive reptiles suffer from dehydration and kidney problems, poor nutrition, and all other manner of neglect. A person who is truly ready to commit to a reptile pet can alleviate some suffering by adopting an animal rather than purchasing new.

lnteresting Reptiles & More Trivia Low-Cost Illinois Spay & Neuter Clinics
    The word Reptile comes from the Latin Repere, which means to creep. In the Florida Everglades, there are over 20,000 non-native reptiles such as Burmese Pythons due to people releasing reptile pets into the wild. The largest Burmese Python in captivity weighs over 400 pounds and is about 27 feet long.
