I am a special turtle. I am healthy, but before I came to Dancing Turtle I was kept in a small tank with very little water and I didn’t know how to swim! I have learned how, but I do some silly things like sleeping underwater as if I’m standing on my head. The humans say it is quite entertaining.
I eat turtle food with occasional shrimp and mealworm treats. I’ll need a 75-gallon or larger aquarium, with a strong filter, heat and UVB lighting, and a basking spot. Because I am still getting used to deep water, I will be happier with lots of plastic plants and some other underwater decor I can rest on. Debbie at Dancing Turtle can assist you with setup options.
