Pearl River Map Turtle: Graptemys pearlensis

Category: Map Turtles

Experience Level: Intermediate to Advanced [?]

Description

The Pearl River Map turtle is a very pretty, and very uncommon turtle, found only in the Pearl and Pascagoula rivers in Mississippi and Louisiana. Also called the Pascagoula Map turtle, they prefer swift currents with sand or gravel bottoms. Habitat destruction and pollution have put this species' future at risk.

Juveniles take pellets, insects, fish, clams and snails. They prefer basking in secluded settings and do best in cool, clean and well circulated water. Pearl River Maps are rarely available, as only a few breeders are successfully working with them, but their beauty and plight in the wild make them well worth the extra effort to properly keep them.

* 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. *
