Product Description

North American Woods have tremendous personalities. In intelligence tests, this species tests higher than some mammals. They learn very easily, and very quickly. They are great in groups. They will do well in mostly aquatic tanks, or on mostly land, depending upon your set up. Clean, chlorinated tap water is perfect for this species that inhabits clean, cold mountain streams.

North American woods are all- terrain turtles, they are excellent climbers, they will burrow into mud, they like to bask, and they like to swim, even diving to the bottom for food, exploration, or to sleep.

Juveniles are mostly carnivores, taking insects, meat, pellets and anything that moves. Adults will also take most fruits and vegetables. It is virtually impossible for any size wood to pass up an earth worm.

Truly one of the best species to set up, these turtles reward keepers both in tanks, and in outdoor pens/ponds with many years of both interesting and gratifying experiences. The blood line that we have been working with for many years is particularly high colored, and has been featured both on the cover, and as the centerfold of Reptiles Magazine. One of our females is also the cover animal on Ronald Orenstein's book: “Turtles, Tortoises & Terrapins.”

    Wood Turtles and Turtle Source

    Posted by Ritt J Enderson on Nov 3rd 2021

    I have purchased a number of turtles from The Turtle Source over the years. The animals have always been perfectly healthy, high quality and well cared for. Packaging is done with obvious care and attention to detail. Shipping is flawless and communication through the whole transaction is excellent. One can tell the folks there are passionate about what they do and they really go the extra mile to give customers a good experience. The Turtle Source is at least as importantly a great source for supplies, advice and first class information on husbandry details about your critters. The prices tend to be comparatively high, but consider that a worthwhile investment. How many sick turtles do you buy to equal a single healthy one?
