High Orange Florida Softshelled Turtles: Apalone ferox
Category: Soft Shelled Turtles
Experience Level: Intermediate [?]
Five years ago we hatched a handsome male Florida Softshell with very bright orange coloring and a stunning pattern, we raised him up hoping that he would add some color to our breeding colony. Last fall an entire clutch of very pretty, very orange Florida Softshells hatched out for us. These turtles have amazing patterns and breathtaking colors. They are very well started and are ready to brighten up keeper's tanks. Their husbandry and care is identical to that of normal colored Florida Softshells and follows:
Florida Softshells make very good community turtles. They will often 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 most fish.
Florida Softshells quickly learn to come to feeding and will liven up any tank. They will take pellets, fish, worms, meat snails and crayfish. Once four to five inches, they also make good pond turtles in summer months or warmer climates.
* 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. *
