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.
First time turtle owner, so i was a bit nervous about ordering one online. However, my new baby turtle, Flapjack, got here happy and healthy the very next morning. She came with pellets that were a little big for her, but i’ll definitely be feeding her them once she grows up a little:)
Had my mal turtles for a week now and they are amazing.
Love it it’s so amazing.
One time I had a Mississippi mass turtle and I loved them. But then one day I was 85 。F my mom put it outside in the sun. I was playing games inside my mom said to check on my turtles Then when I went outside one turtle was Flipped over and died and the other was died not flipped over but overall love it
Shipping arrived on time and there was a perfectly healthy mississippi map inside. Included enough pellets for several months of feeding. Jamie (the turtle) started eating pellets the same day he arrived which surprised me. Still healthy a month after purchase. Overall, i am happy with my purchase and I would recommend this sight to others.
