Our turtles

Pseudemys nelsoni
Florida Red-bellied Cooter


We have from long time 3.2.3 breeding group CB.

Our Pseudemys nelsoni are all captive bred. The males are bigger then the females. The biggest male is about 28 cm SCL and 1,8 kg. They are housed for all the year in a large and deep pond with others Emididae like Chrysemys and Graptemys. We don't never notice aggressive behaviours among these turtles, because all the specimen have a lot of space available. We feed Pseudemys nelsoni only once a week with vegetables, grass, fruit, and once a month with dead fish and shrimps; in the pond they can find food everytime they need.
