    Southern Painted turtle babies

    Wonderful lively painted turtle babies. Arrived in good condition and ready to swim. Within 4 hours the babies were eating and basking under the heat lamp/UVB bulb on their log. Exciting to watch them explore their new habitat.

    southern painted turtles

    Yes the specimens arrived alive, but they're practically fresh out of the shell, and clearly still very delicate. The ad said these turtles were hatched in '14 and that's clearly not the case! I would have advised growing them larger before sale and shipment. One specimen is already showing signs of lethargy and closed eyelids (they should be active, eating like pigs and basking when not disturbed); I doubt it will live out the week. Shipping and new set ups for turtles this size/age can be extremely stressful and detrimental in my opinion, even with less fickle species like painteds. I'm less than pleased and the sellers should show greater care and honesty in advertising.

    Southern Painted Hatchling

    Just received my Southern Painted and he/she was alive and well even with the colder weather. Great color and very active, even at a little bit. Would've liked to know the sex but I know it's very difficult to tell until they are older.
