Indeed, Joe. Congenital? Trauma? Disease?

Ok it's all done at last...big rethink on this one
1 frame work lowered as it was way to high
2,the bed liner didn't give me enough depth at the highest point,only 4 inch when filled with sand / water...so fibreglass was used to make the whole frame watertight ..dumped the bed liner
3 outside..no ,I decided to use this one for the hatchling muck as an indoor set- up.
This set- up now is fully up and running in Turtlesville...built at last..more pics to come

Ridiculously impressive, Joe! Excellent set up for the turtles, and very attractive for the onlookers too! I love the way you combine your enthusiasms, and utilise your amazing metal (and wood!) working skills.

Turtlesville looks great! More pics when you can, please!
