    Field Collected Kwangtungs?

    I imagine this is just a typo, because my understanding is that M.nigricans is extinct in the wild. These are also really small, but pretty cheap. Sent underground an email for more info. Anyone seen anything like this?

    Albino Turtle For Trade

    I figured I’d post this here as well and see what kind of responses I get. I have a CB 2016 Albino Chinese Softshell for trade. He is 5 inches and growing fast. I will be keeping him for at least two weeks as he heals from some small cuts inflicted on him from a clutch mate that is now...

    *Reduced Price*: Albino Chinese Softshell

    Selling this very male looking Albino Chinese Softshell Turtle (Pelodiscus Sinensis). Sold to me by Steven Brenner in November of 2016. I believe hatched in October of 2016. This species, and particularly this turtle, is very aggressive and I wouldn’t recommend housing him or any older...

    Mauremys ID

    So, this woman sent me a message on insatgram asking for help with her Mauremys turtle. The light coloration seems a bit strange. I’ve never been a great ID’er, but luckily we’ve got good friends for that. @Markw84 @Anthony P

    How Many Burms In A Season?

    To all you successful G. Platynota breeders, how many eggs, on average, are you getting from each female? In how many clutches? Thanks in advance. Trying to get a more accurate idea of averages than individual articles.

    Sorry for the click bait title :( Introducing the Yellow Pond Turtle, Mauremys Mutica Mutica. These arrived just this morning from Florida. Interesting to see the difference in color between the two. This species is Endangered in the wild, but not much interest has been paid to them...

    New Gift From TortStork

    I've got a surprise on its way from TortStork. This is a test of sorts. The egg is a few days from pipping. If all goes well, Randy @shellfreak , would be able to ensure fertility and not risk the embryo. I have a few photos to show how the egg is packaged and shipped. I'll wait for the little...

They are each from different bloodlines so ideally they can be bred as adults. Using a 40 gallon breeder as an enclosure for now. Was going to put them in a much...

    Good Tortoise News:)

    Well, here is a good news story. A few months ago, I thought I had lost a Russian tortoise. I found a hole in the underground wire that is supposed to prevent him from digging out. I thought he had escaped, and after three months, I thought he was definitely gone. Well, today I heard digging...

    Pelusios Nanus (African Dwarf Muds)

    Thought I'd share the new pair of Pelusios Nanus or African Dwarf Muds. The name is accurate. These guys are incredibly tiny. (I'll believe they can lay multiple eggs when I see it:).) I believe they are the smallest freshwater turtle species, but not positive on that. They are incredibly...
