European Pond Turtles: Emys orbicularis

Category: European Water Turtles

Experience Level: Starter to Intermediate [?]

Description

European Pond Turtles inhabit the slow moving rivers and streams of Spain, Portugal, France Greece and Italy. They're also found in the Baltic region, the former soviet states, into Iran and Turkey. European Pond Turtles are also found in soft bottomed lakes, marshes and ponds with plenty of vegetation. One key to this species success is their ability to thrive in brackish, and even very polluted waters. Truly, Emys orbicularis are impressive survivors...

These are great turtles for all levels of keepers. They love to bask, and quickly overcome their instinct to dive back in when startled. European Pond turtles love to bury in soft bottoms, where they will actively hunt for food. They are very carnivorous, stalking insects, worms, mollusks, crustaceans,amphibians and fish. If it moves, they'll eat it - on land or in the water... We raise ours on cut fish, worms and pellets.

European Pond Turtles are very similar in appearance and habits to American Blandings Turtles. Dark brown to black in shell color with literally thousands of small white to yellow spots. Their plastron (belly) is partially hinged, similar to a Box Turtle's. Their extensive range gives them great temperature tolerances, and adults (up to 6+ inches) make fine additions to outdoor ponds. These are very personable turtles, great for glass tanks with either good basking areas, or even part land - part water set ups. Considering their vast range and great versatility, European Pond Turtles are great turtle representatives of the old world...
