Here's a great little pet turtle - they're highly intelligent, good swimmers, and they get along well with most other species - thank fully, we now hatch them out here in the US, because... Asian Yellow Pond Turtles are disappearing through out their entire natural range. This rare species has been heavily harvested for food in it's native China - where it is in immediate danger of extinction. Yellow Ponds have been given international protection (CITIES Appendix II). Captive breeding is now recognized as the only best hope for this species.
Such a pretty, friendly and outgoing little Turtle - our largest breeders are only 6/7 inches long. Asian Yellow Ponds are very good swimmers, they love to bask, and do very well in groups and with other species. True omnivores, they love pellets, fish, worms, plants and fruit. It took us six years of working with them to hatch our first cute mini versions of the adults. Now you can have some too !
