Product Description

Captive Born Midland Painted Turtles are so infrequently available that we don't often see them. One of the prettiest of the painted turtles, they are found from southern Ontario through the central states east of the Mississippi River as far south as Tennessee and Alabama. Their carapace (top shell) has distinct patterns around the edge, sometimes with red coloration. Their plastron (bottom shell) is a yellow/orange with a variable dark pattern/shape in the center. Similar to Eastern and Western Painted Turtles in some ways, Midland Painted Turtles remain distinctly different over all.

Although harder to find, Midland painted turtles, also make fine beginner and intermediate tank turtles. They also thrive in larger community set ups. Just like other painted turtles, the colors of Midland Painted Turtles improves as they grow. Once over 4 inches they also make very beautiful additions to outdoor ponds.

    Cute little guy

    Posted by Jody on Jan 14th 2022

    I received my new little guy, Toto, a couple days ago. I'm thinking it is a male as his tail is really long with a sharp point. He appeared healthy and was active the minute I opened the container. He was a minor imperfection, but honestly, I couldn't actually find any imperfections on him. He's got a beautiful shell with orange around each of the scutes, I'm hoping this remains as he grows. I'm very happy with him and am looking forward to introducing him to the community tank when he gets some size to him.

    The turtle arrived on the date requested. The packaging was secure and was packed to keep his container from moving around. The turtle was very active, acted like he had just been put in the container and is doing very well. I have always had an excellent experience with the Turtle Source.
