Why is my turtles shell curling up?

Why is my turtles shell curling up?

Some breeders tend to feed a very high protein diet to turtles in order to get them to grow faster, which results in the shell curving upwards. As your turtle becomes an adult, their diet must change to more plant-based foods with some protein now and then.

How often should I feed my turtles?

The frequency of feeding depends on the age and size of your red-eared slider. Smaller or juvenile turtles will eat heartily every day. As they get older, adult turtles may be offered a good-sized portion of food every two or three days.

How to get the header and body of curl?

To get both (header and body), I usually perform a curl -D- <url> as in: This will dump headers ( -D) to stdout ( -) (Look for –dump-header in man curl ). I often use jq to get that json data (eg from some rest APIs) formatted. But as jq doesn’t expect a HTTP header, the trick is to print headers to stderr using -D/dev/stderr.

How to tell curl to read format from stdin?

The format can be specified as a literal “string”, or you can have curl read the format from a file with “@filename” and to tell curl to read the format from stdin you write “@-“. The variables present in the output format will be substituted by the value or text that curl thinks fit, as described below.

What causes a chelonian turtle’s shell to become soft?

All chelonians must be kept in an environment with a steady, appropriate humidity. If ​a semi-​aquatic turtle doesn’t have adequate heating or basking areas,​ their shells can become soft and the plates may lift up to allow bacteria inside. The same goes for terrestrial turtles in too damp of an environment.

How to get the HTTP status code from curl?

Credits for the generic read with IFS processing go to this answer: https://unix.stackexchange.com/a/430182/45479 . This way we can pipe the curl when it fails, and it also shows the status code. Append a line “http_code:200” at the end, and then grep for the keyword “http_code:” and extract the response code.

Where does a curler place the curling stone?

It is my observation that in reality, most curlers position the stone so that the middle of the stone is opposite the inside edge of the hack. In fact, when I record a delivery, that’s where I place the stone. I then aim my laser beam at the center of stone on the striking band.

What’s the no back swing delivery in curling?

by Bill Tschirhart No single technical change has so captured the imagination of the curling world than the no back swing delivery (which for the purpose of the remainder of this article shall be dubbed the “no bs delivery” [enough with the snickering]). It’s now the industry standard.

What’s the C curve motion on a curling stone?

Some very good curlers set up as in the previous paragraph and move the sliding foot in that “C curve” motion but when the sliding foot comes forward around the hack foot, there is a distinct, albeit short, pause. Then the sliding foot can move straight forward.

What causes a bulge on a curling stone?

If an adjustment was deemed necessary by the athlete, I suggested that the “bulge” existed because the athlete was moving his/her body over the top of the stone. The downward pressure of the body on the stone caused the bulge. The remedy involved making sure that the stone is kept in front of the body.

Overfeeding and/or too much protein can cause too fast a growth, which in turn can cause the shells to turn upward. Hatchlings can have growth spurts and as part of that, the shells can start to turn upward as well.

Why does my tortoise shell looks dry?

If your turtle’s shell looks dry, it is most likely due to hard water mineral deposits, retained scutes, or unhealthy humidity levels. Make sure your UV-light bulb is up-to-date and always feed your turtle a nutritious, balanced diet.
