$69.95 - $159.00

Product Description

Razorbacks are much lighter in color than most muds and musks. From gray to almost silver, or light brown to orange with spotted or streaked darker markings, they are one of the prettiest. As their name suggests, they have a very prominent keeled shell, and a hinged bottom.

Razorbacks are omnivores, taking pellets, fish, crustaceans, insects, meat, worms and aquatic plants. Shallow bottom dwellers, Razorbacks bask more than do most muds and musks. They are easily kept with other muds and musks, and or in a community tank with other turtle species.

As adults they keep much of their juvenile color, and do well in lager set ups ,or as shallow outdoor pond“garbage disposals.

    Razorback musk turtle

    Posted by Wendy Taylor on Aug 31st 2023

    I ordered 3 turtles from them I sent a email asking for someone to get in touch with me to let me know what all they were feeding them so that I could have everything I needed before they arrived well I got them and my razorback would not get out of the water at all so I sent another email after about 3 days someone emailed me back but was absolutely no help at all. I kept reaching out to them begging for help with my little guy because he wasn't eating either well today is 8-31 and I woke up to my little guy dead. I have emailed them this morning and no response. I spent over 300.00 on all 3 babies and did not get any help from them. I have cried so hard this morning over loosing my little guy. My other 2 turtles are doing absolutely amazing.

    Bought a hatchling Razorback Musk, arrived in perfect condition. The turtle looks very healty and active. No issue with the order, except there was a weather delay that pushed the shipping by another day (not their fault). Will definitely order from here in the future.

    Razorback Musk

    Posted by Deb Weber on Sep 4th 2022

    Shipping went perfect. Received the cute little hatchling along with another and he settled into his tank with no problems and even ate right away. So adorable Highly recommend to order from. This is my second time ordering through them, a couple years ago I ordered 2 common musks and still have them, and are much loved pets.
