Fencing Outdoor Ponds
Fencing has an overlap at the top to prevent turtles climbing up and over the netting fences.
The wooden retaining wall is very good to stop them escaping as well.
Secure fencing is critical to prevent escapes from a pond. They can squeeze through Small gaps, climb up netting and shrubbery, or dig their way out; particularly a female wanting to lay eggs. I've had turtles scale a 1 metre fence! Use smooth wood or large, natural boulders or plastic netting with an overhang at the top. Whatever you choose, remember other animals, children and burglars can also be an issue for your turtles outside so think carefully about where you want to position your pond.
