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.

    I’ve received my Peninsula Cooter in top form and condition. The little one was very happy and active. This turtle showed within hours to have been the best choice for me. Thank you Turtle Source for the excellent quality and good care of these turtles.
