I found this great video of this really cool turtle pond. It’s a huge pond with waterfalls, fish, a land bridge, numerous basking areas, a nesting area, 4 feet of water, and, of course, turtles!! The video highlights the important aspects to consider when designing a pond for turtles:
- escape proof so turtles don’t escape the yard and go out on the street
- places underwater to hide from predators or hibernate
- basking areas
- nesting areas
- safe filter skimmer so as to not suck up and drown turtles
Enjoy the video!!
