we use to find them around my house as kids ,they're gone from this area now .......i use to keep exotic turtles and tortoises , at one point i decided to raise turtles native to this area that could live in my yard all year ........... i went and got 7 hatchlings from 3 different sources , paid 60$ a piece , in 2018 i got 3 more probaly 2-4yr olds from another source , paid 1500$ and 500$ in vet expense.............. they been very fun to raise ,,,,, cold tolerant as turtles get , and more aware than anything i've had ...... you would definitely enjoy them

same guy 7yrs later , he's the bottom one of the two ..... these were the first two of the 7 ....

exercise is huge ..... i've bought turtles in the past that were healthy but weak ... they eventually strengthened up , from climbing , swimming , digging and walking ..... these guys have 0 stress , an abundance of food , and they live in there natural environment ......
