Product Description

Very similar to our High Orange Mississippi Map turtles, we hatched one small clutch of Ouachita Map Turtles that showed early hints of orange on their heads & shells.  As they grew, their orange became more pronounced - even their legs and tails have orange where normal Ouachitas have yellow or white.  Their behavior and care is identical to that of normally colored Ouachita Maps and follows:


One of the small headed Map Turtles, the Ouachita Map Turtle is found in swift rivers and silt bottomed lakes from Texas and Louisiana north to Ohio and east to Kentucky.  Ouachita Maps loves to bask, and often pile serveral turtles high to share the same basking log.  With colors from ranging from light gray to deep brown, this very pretty map turtle has many color varations.


Ouachita Map Trutles are true omnivores - eating vegetation, cut fish and insects.  Ours readily take pelleted food, romaine lettuce and occasionally crickets, cut fish or earth worms.


An ideal turtle for beginning keepers, Ouachita Maps stay small, quickly become very familiar with their keepers and their tanks; and get along very well with most other turtles species.  This active little turtle is a fine choice as either a first turtle - or as a community turtle.
