Species: Mississippi Map Turtle (Graptemys pseudogeographica kohni)
Age: Adult, approximately 8 years old
Size: Small (under 6 inches)
Minimum aquarium size: 40 gallons
I’m a healthy Mississippi map turtle and approximately 8 years old, and I am available for adoption. My kind are native to Mississippi and you might also hear us called sawback turtles. I scoot around the bottom of the tank when I’m not basking, and you’ll have fun watching me move! I eat turtle pellets well.
I’ll need a 40-gallon or larger aquarium, with a strong filter, heat and UVB lighting, and a basking spot. Debbie at Dancing Turtle can assist you with setup options.
