New to the forum - I live in northwest Sydney and am thinking about getting a turtle in a large suburban backyard and seeking advice on the best type of turtle suited and about the plans for building the enclosure. This is the area where the enclosure will be. Bamboo on the left, and a garage on the right. Its boundaries are the sandstone path and the wall of the garage. There is already a small pond (next to the dark green grassy plants). I have a rough idea, to dig a second pond joining it to the small pond around 1.5m x 2m x 60-80cm deep in size, and line it with a pond liner because there might be an issue with a pipe (hence the variance in depth). Will the addition of the second pond be enough for a turtle? I have had a look at the patterns of the sun and it gets dappled sunlight 7-3:30 with the most sun from 9:00-11:00. Is this enough sunlight for the turtle? Thanks heaps!
