Product Description

In 2004, A single clutch of Map Turtles hatched out with these stunning orange markings. The parents showed no signs of the trait, but the gene for high orange color was likely present in both parents.We held them back to breed and we are now four generations in with amazing results. There is lots of variation in both patterns and colors of our High Orange Maps but each of them has orange instead of yellow or white makings, with orange highlights on their shells. Some times their skin is gray, some times black - but their lighter colored markings are always orange and normally gets brighter as they grow...


Their background and care is otherwise the same as normal Mississippi Maps, and follows:

Mississippi Map Turtles are excellent starter turtles, and they make fine community turtles as well. As with most maps, they have very detailed shell and skin patterns. True omnivores, they will take pellets, plant matter, insects, fish, mollusks and earth worms.

Mississippi maps are fond of basking, but quickly dive in when approached. In time, they overcome this instinct and become quite tame. They are very good tank turtles, and adults also do well in outdoor ponds.
