Florida Chicken Turtles: Deirochelys reticularia chrysea

Category: Other North American Turtles

Experience Level: Advanced [?]

Description

One of the two North American snake necks, (Blanding's being the other), Chicken turtles use their long necks and specialized throats and mouths to suck in or snap up food. While adults will eat some plant matter, all sizes will take fish, pellets, insects, meat and crustaceans.

Chicken turtles bask often but are the first back in the water when approached. Juveniles are excellent tank turtles, and adults do well in outdoor ponds in summer months, or year round in warmer climates. Many adults adjust to captivity slowly, and acquiring established individuals is the key to success.

Pictured turtles are well started 2008 juveniles.which began hatching in March, and are available now.

* Remember, each turtle order comes with a free starter sample of the same Turtle diet your Turtle has been raised on - this will last one small turtle a few weeks - to order larger quantities, see the lower left side of this page. *
