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.

    These guys are easily one of my favorite turtles, and I couldn't be any more pleased with the one I purchased from here. I ordered him a little over a year ago and he's been doing perfectly ever since he came in. Very beautiful turtles and you won't be disappointed if you're thinking of getting one.

    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.
