Hank is with a foster family and not immediately avaiable.
I’m cute as a button, healthy, and available for adoption. I am a western painted turtle, a relative of New York’s native painted turtle, with lots of personality. I love attention and will swim at the glass to be seen. I will stay small and would be very happy in a home with kids I can be goofy for.
I eat turtle food with occasional shrimp and mealworm treats. I will need a 40 gallon tank with a strong filter, heat and UVB lighting, and a basking spot. Debbie at Dancing Turtle can assist you with setup options.
