White Lipped Mud Turtles - Yealings and Two Year Olds: kinosternon leucostomum
Category: Mud and Musk Turtles
Experience Level: Starter [?]
A pretty and personable mud turtle, White-Lipped Mud Turtles are found in the quiet waters with soft bottoms of southern Mexico, Nicaragua, Colombia and Peru. Medium to dark brown shells and white or yellow head colorations are the trade mark of this long (up to 6 inches) and narrow turtle. Like other mud turtles, the White-lipped Muds are hinged, and can completely close up inside their shells - just like a box turtle.
An excellent pet turtle, White-Lipped Mud turtles (Kinosternon leucostomum) are moderately to highly aquatic, appreciate a nicely arranged water tank and can be kept with fish. Only a small basking area is needed - and is not always used. They are omnivores, eating any protein and several plant foods offered. Ours enjoy pellets, cut fish & meat and even some insects. This species does well in groups of the same or similar sized mud turtles, or are fine by themselves, spending much of their time foraging and investigating their tank bottoms.< /p>
* 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. *
