They are very active, learn to recognize their keepers, and forage endlessly along the bottom of their tank. With the typical adult size of barely four inches, these are one of the world’s smallest turtles. They are tiny when born – and well started hatchlings are only an inch long at best …

All range states now appropriately protect this species. Captive breeding of Three Striped Mud Turtles has made great strides in recent years – and they are now more available.

Three Striped Mud Turtles do not need a large tank – well started hatchlings are very small, and do well in the smallest of tanks, and a 20 gallon “long”aquarium can easily house 2 or 3 adults for life.

They like shallow water, with a bit of gravel & lots of underwater “tank furniture” (plastic plants, rocks, logs etc.). We raise ours on pellets, occasionally giving them cut fish, cut beef heart and small earth worms. They happily take any type of protein food, and they enjoy small insects & crustaceans – and will learn to eat from your hand, if you like.
