One of the two North American snake necks, (Blanding's being the other), Chicken turtles use their long necks and specialized throats and mouths to suck in or snap up food. While adults will eat some plant matter, all sizes will take fish, pellets, insects, meat and crustaceans.
Chicken turtles bask often but are the first back in the water when approached. Juveniles are excellent tank turtles, and adults do well in outdoor ponds in summer months, or year round in warmer climates. Many adults adjust to captivity slowly, and acquiring established individuals is the key to success.
Pictured turtles are well started 2008 juveniles.which began hatching in March, and are available now.
I was advised to wait a few days prior to shipping to make sure the little fella was eating and ready to go. He/she arrived yesterday and is actively, swimming, sunning, climbing and eating - smelt today. Couldn't be happier! Perfect!
why do you have these on your website when they are never in stock? Seriously
Will there be any available this season?
