    Healthy Beautiful Baby

    Posted by Heather Miller on Jun 27th 2024

    Before I even received my well started hatchling I knew this company was a good choice. I got a call earlier in the week from an extremely friendly lady telling me I needed to reschedule because of excessive heat. I loved that they cared enough to get ahold of me for that. Then when I opened the very well packaged turtle, I couldn’t believe how tiny and healthy it was! The baby ate immediately, has been basking, pooping fine and has been absolutely thriving in his or her tank. Absolutely happy with my baby and very recommended!

    I am very impressed with how responsive their customer service team is and how they answered all of our questions and offered great advice that helped us decide on which turtle would suit us best. We’ve had our little turtle for almost a week and have had no issues. It arrive well packaged and healthy. It was full of energy as soon as we placed it in its aquarium. We plan on getting it a mate pretty soon!

    Yearling Eastern Painted w/ minor imperfections

    Posted by Stephanie on Apr 11th 2024

    I am VERY pleased with my new turtle. She arrived fast & healthy. When purchasing a minor imperfection turtle, I was expecting to receive a noticeable injury, shell rot, ect. She just has a minor tail nip, barely noticeable. I would give a 10 star rating if I could. Definitely will order from this store again. Thank you!

    This one was the smallest of the batch I ordered. Just a chill little guy. Very beautiful shell and as the subject says cute.

    Well established hatchling

    Posted by Keir Scott on Mar 29th 2024

    Squirtle arrived without a hitch. Extremely healthy. A little slow to accept pellet food but went straight for the plants in his aquarium. Dark shell with no imperfections. I expect him to thrive. The turtle was not sexed but by the length of the tail, we're judging male. No complaints, will purchase from The Turtle Source again.
