Experience Level: Intermediate [?]
Care Sheet: Soft-shelled Turtles
Smooth Softshells make very good community turtles. They love to bury in sand with just their head exposed waiting to surprise a fish. They're excellent swimmers and do well in mostly water tanks, with plants and other under water objects. They quickly settle in and will swim about their tanks as much as fish.
Smooth Softshells quickly learn to come to feeding and will liven up any tank. They love insects, and will also take pellets, fish, worms, snails and crayfish. Once four to five inches, they also make good pond turtles and have the mildest tempers of all the North American Softshells .
* 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. *
