Product Description

Reeves turtles are one of the world's smallest turtles, Also called the Three Keeled Pond Turtle, they are one of the many amazing Asian turtle species that are threatened by over collecting for the Chinese food market. This is the same friendly, sharp featured, little turtle that was very popular in the pet trade in the 1970's and before. Thankfully, we and several other US turtle breeders have been successfully hatching them for many years now. They are very personable and friendly little turtles that do fine in smaller set ups - think of them as the ideal turtle for a small home or apartment... As adults, a pair will do fine in a 20 gallon "long" or larger aquarium.  

Reeves Turtles, (Chinemys Reevesii), are a lover of shallow water that like 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. They are a very hardy species, with lots of personality, making them fine additions to any home wanting to bring a little bit of the natural world inside to appreciate and enjoy.

    Reeve’s hatchling

    Posted by Danielle on Jul 15th 2023

    I was skeptical to have a hatchling shipped and the health it would be in. However, this little turtle is absolutely amazing and I have already sent the link to numerous people. I would highly recommend ordering through here. I know I won’t go anywhere else.

    They are super adorable. One is shy and the other one is more outgoing. The shy one is coming around because he needs food from us :)

    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.

    Reeves Turtles

    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).
