turtle for outdoor pond

22 16:15:49

I'd live in Santa Cruz foothills and would like to get a native turtle for our
outdoor man-made pond. What type would you recommend? Western Pond
Turtle? How do I protect it from predators or do I? Are turtles compatible with
Pacific treefrogs or will they eat them. What do turtles eat?

I've never kept a turtle in an outdoor pond, and am not familiar enough with your local turtles to suggest anything.

What I CAN do is point you to a bunch of experienced keepers who can easily answer this for you-

Good luck!
