Re: [waterturtles] Re: Looking for a New Home
- The Painteds are native to NC, and can be released in a pond with Painteds around late April at the earliest. The RES needs to stay in captivity, as they are becoming invasive in NC with as yet unknown consequences.

Thanks for the info. I hope you will be able to find someone in your area. You are correct that they should not be released, since they are not native to your area. If you don't hear from anyone on the list, you can contact your local herp society people, and local animal shelters. A pet store might take the smallest one. Good luck!

> Oh, my! Forgot the important stuff. I'm in North Carolina and will drive them anywhere within 250 miles. They are all good eaters but I don't know ages. I have had them for more than 5 years after rescuing them from someone. The females are about 5" long, the male is 3-1/2" long (carapace). I would ship them if I knew how to go about it.
> I also have a juvenile RES who will need rehoming. She's 6-1/2" long and came from a home where she had virtually no water or good quality turtle food. Consequently her carapace curls slightly at the edge.

- THIS IS A TWICE MONTHLY MESSAGE FOR SUBSCRIPTION INFORMATION.
FROM: List owner, Alex Netherton
This is just a message for members, letting you know about the subscription options in eGroups, and other related information.
To change your subscription settings, go to http://www.groups.yahoo.com/group/waterturtles , sign in, and click on "modify".
1.) You can set your account to recieve individual e-mails. This is for folks who want each individual post sent to them.
2.)You can set up a "daily digest". This lumps all messages into one, and they are all sent to you in one message. Great for folks who do not want a full in box. It also strips out attachments, so you will have to go to the website (shown above) to read the messages and look at the attachments.
3.) You can choose "no mail". This allows you to recieve no messages, so you will have to go to the website to read them. Great for folks who are going out of town. You can go into any library or internet cafe or friends computer, sign on and look at messages. The big benefit is that you do not have to unsubscribe while out of town, and when you get back, just change the settings.
4.) If you really want to unsubscribe, it can be done from the same page. (Now, why would you want to do that?)
ABSOLUTELY do not collect e-mails from members and direct mail to them for any reason. I have no problem with people telling us about books they have written, or things they sell, but send them to the group ONCE, and it MUST be about water turtle care or keeping.
These settings can be changed any time from the group page at http://www.groups.yahoo.com/group/waterturtles .
PLEASE don't ask the moderators to unsubscribe you; it is all too easy for us to unsubscribe the wrong person, and leave you on the group, making two people mad. (This is a do-it-yourself sort of thing.)
Thanks from the group owner;
