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 9 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’ve been coming into my own after being separated from the more aggressive turtles I lived with most of my life before coming to Dancing Turtle. I am a strong swimmer and would love a large tank with deep water to kick my big feet. I’ll need at least a 40-gallon aquarium, the bigger the better, with a strong filter, heat and UVB lighting, and a basking spot. Debbie at Dancing Turtle can assist you with setup options.
