One of the world's smallest turtles, the Reeves Turtle, or Chinese Three Keeled Pond Turtle, is one of the many Asian species threatened by over collecting for the Chinese food market. This is the same friendly, sharp featured, little turtle that was popular in the pet trade in the 1970's and before. Thankfully, they have been breed readily for several US keepers today.
Reeves Turtles, (Chinemys Reevesii), love to bask. They are omnivorous, feeding readily on pellets, aquatic plants, fruits and greens, along with worms, insects, fish and meat.
With a maximum size of only 4 - 5 inches, Reeves Turtles make excellent first turtles. This is a very hardy species, with lots of personality, making them fine additions to any collection.
After learning of my minor complaint regarding some small details, the Turtle Source wanted to make things right and I told them that would not be necessary over something so minorand the animals were almost text book perfect. I explained I was just being honest and it was received in a positive manner. You don't get Customer Service like this from most online businesses, involving live animals. Much Respect. I look forward to future orders.
Arrived alive and clear eyed with all digits. Very active. Beautiful text book colors. 3 out of 4 had nipped tails (just the tips) even though I ordered no imperfections but I know this is common with this species (similar to snappers).

Yearling Reeves Turtle
Recieved my yearling Reeves Turtle yesterday and it is in perfect health. Already saw it eating and couldn't be more thrilled.
Thank you so much Turtle Source for taking care when packaging our babies. We are enjoying them both. I’m laid up a lot and I enjoy my Aquarium for small turtles on my dresser. They are so fun to watch. We will definitely refer friends;)
We received our turtle on time as promised. He is such a sweet addition to our family!
