I like Ornate wood turtles. That's what I plan to get next. 1eb716effa5d3aa9a4ac6f3c77923c19.jpg

Oh my goodness that is very vibrant and beautiful [emoji7] I didn't know that was a species. I might be sold on that one lol
They are like box turtles too, spend the majority of their time on land.

I've always liked adult male Batagur borneoensis, the painted terrapin. Not the most colorful shell but I love that face.

Three other personal favorites although not as colorful, can be hard to find, delicate, and a little pricey.


Geomyda spengleri, the Vietnamese black-breasted leaf turtle.

Erymnochelys madagascarienis, the Madagascar big-headed turtle

And Carettochelys insculpta, the Fly River or pig-nosed turtle.

I've seen eastern box turtles out there that are more outrageously colored than this one
