Product Description

Stinkpots or common musk turtles are mostly aquatic and do very well as resident“garbage disposals.”They readily eat pellets, even ones that have settled to the bottom, along with any protein matter they are offered.

They do well in community tanks so long as they are with slightly larger, more active turtles - as they sometimes nip the tails of their cage mates.

Once accustomed to people, they are fascinating to watch as they forage about the bottom of their tank. As adults they thrive in both larger tanks and outdoor ponds.

    I received a amazingly healthy hatchling who is just so adorable and active. He ate immediately the first time I fed him!!! I have zero complaints. There was a bit of a snafu with getting my order shipped but they got it all figured out with me and made sure that all problems were solved! Amazing people, amazing customer service! I will definitely buy from here again!!!!

    Perfect Little Guy

    Posted by K and R on Jul 23rd 2022

    My boyfriend and I love our new little turtle. It is very lively and the box came with bags of turtle food. The sellers were very communicative and made sure not to send him to us directly in this hot Texas weather. Perfect condition and lovely addition to our little family. Could not be more happy with this purchase.

    My little stinkpot

    Posted by Shymika Medeiros on May 4th 2022

    Arrived on time, has a little part of the back of his/her shell missing, but we won't be participating in any pageants anytime soon, beside it gives character. Still haven't been able to get my turtle to eat, but seems healthy, clear eyes and pretty active. Still seems to be scared, but hopefully soon all will be great!

    Received a vigorous yearling in outstanding health. Shipping was outstanding and Maria's timely correspondence was much appreciated. First-rate operation who clearly cares about both the animal's health and welfare and offering outstanding customer service.

    Shy little boy

    Posted by Luis Bustamante on Feb 22nd 2022

    My little guy came and he arrived very shy, but he is doing well now. Very active and seems to be enjoying his tank very well. TheTurtleSource has been doing a wonderful job with these animals, so I always have good faith in them when I purchase from them.
