    Hello everyone,

    I hope this is the correct place to put this topic.

    So, down to the point. I am considering getting a golden head Chinese box turtle. I have been looking for care guides but unfortunately the internet can have less than accurate information sometimes. So that's why I have come to you all. I know I can trust your all's advice.

    So if you would not mind please educate me on the care of these interesting turtles.

    Thank you.

    I may be mistaken but I believe that @HermanniChris has experience with them.

    if you mean flavomarginata , i've kept quite a few , they were very hardy turtles , i kept them like gulf coast box turtles , terrestial but real wet ..... they were very carnivorous , mice , worms , turtle and fish pellets , dog food , sweet potato , strawberries , bananana , not much for vegetables or grasses ..... very cool turtles i wish i had kept them .......

    Just bumping this a little to see if anyone else has some input. Hopefully if all goes well I'll have a 3" little turtle the first week of June.
