    Hi all we have been looking after our Murray River turtle of just over 2 years and with the arrival of a new baby and a change of job commitments we unfortunately find our selves in a position where we can not commit enough time to ensure a happy life for him.

    So we are looking to place him with a caring turtle owner

    1) Common Name: Murray River turtle
    2) Scientific Name: Emydura macquarii
    3) Number available: 1
    4) Shell length in cm: 11.5 - 12cm just over 2 years old
    5) Housed inside or outside? Inside
    6) Dimensions of current enclosure: 900 Length x 450 Width x 450 Depth
    7) Turtle's name: Squirtle
    8) Location (suburb and post code): Mooroolbark VIC 3138
    9) Is there a tank/pond or other equipment available to the new owner? Can possible come to an agreement

    Thanks Kev, we just don't have the space to give him the proper sized home he deserves. We where always after a long-neck but had to take him in. Maybe down the track once life settles, we can give it another go. :)

    Sorry Matt, my stupid Facebook program is playing up something shocking. I posted it on the Turtle Care page but it went onto my own FB page. I just typed where I went wrong and 3 or 4 posts come up. When I delete the post one more comes up again automatically.
