European terrapin


A few week ago I got the opportunity to observe these turtles. OK, turtles are not that exciting, but I kind of like them.

Currently we have summer here in the northern hemisphere and luckily it’s really hot. Reptiles, and turtles are reptiles, need a warm or hot environment to be able to move. In the morning they need the sun to get warmed up and reach a proper operating temperature. So, currently they’d feel well at our current temperature around 26 – 36 ° C.

Happy summer 🙂
