Product Description

Peninsula Cooters are a very hardy species. Mainly herbivores, juveniles will eat some fish and insects, but become more vegetarian with age. Pellets and greens, along with occasional fruits, are all they need to thrive.

This species is an excellent community tank turtle. They love to bask, especially in groups. Adults are very good outdoor pond turtles in summer months, or year round in warmer climates. Peninsula Cooters are an excellent choice for just getting started with turtles, or for any keepers who want to see some pretty green in their community set ups.

    Had a little bit of algae on the shell other than that, looks very healthy and already eating.

    My well started hatchling is doing well. Swimming, eating, basking, and exploring. Eating worms and pellets. Great addition to his community tank.
