    Hello guys hope you're all having a fantastic day. Me and the hubby were talking about getting another turtle sometime and he suggested a very colorful turtle.. I said a softshell he wants a bright one lol. Anybody know of any vibrant turtles or tortoises ? If so please let me know [emoji3526] I will be searching the internet as well.

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

    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'm so glad that's photoshopped, otherwise the poor tortoise's eyeball has been destroyed!
