I just got back from picking up my newest species, pelusios nanus, at my buddy farm. These guys are TINY, like a spotted turtle. They have intense yellow coloration on their skin, some on the plastron, too.This is a adult female, ready to breed, imagine how cool a hatchling will come out.Thanks for looking!

Yes, I got a pair. I'll take better pics of both tomorrow. I hope to see some hatchlings one day.

Awesome G!! I thought those were nanus!

Very cool to be one of the only people around with these guys. I love my small turtles, so nanus have obviously always peeked my interest. Hopefully I can see them one day.

Great work.

I REALLY like these guys, going back on Monday to get a larger group. I'm also picking up a pair of gabonesis. I'm stoked!
