Southern Painted's are smallest of the four subspecies of Painted Turtles that inhabit eastern North America. When this picture was take in Aug 2010, Peppi was 1.25" SCL (3.2 cm) and weighted 0.2 oz (6.5 grams). Peppi shares a 20 gallon (75 litre) tall tank (24" x 12" x 16" - 60 cm x 30 cm x 40 cm) with Bermuda, our other Southern Painted hatchling.
...I saw Striped-necked turtles in pet shops in China 3 years ago.
We adopted Raider from another turtle keeper who needed to rehome him. He is still too young to properly sex but I have a suspicion that he may be a she. Diamondback terrapins are the only species called terrapins in North America. They live in salt marshes along the Atlantic seaboard and the Gulf of Mexico. They may be kept in fresh water tanks but are very susceptible to shell problems.
Raider is Mr Personality plus and will swim over and climb into my hand at feeding time. He is very small
I adore this species!
You could really poke an eye out with those claws!
Very nice turtles!
We purchase Pinstripe from a Canadian breeder when he was about a year old. He lost most of his tail when he was a hatchling, but his given us proof that he is a fully functional male. He has his own 45 gallon (170 litre) tank, 36" x 18" x 16" (90 cm x 45 cm x 40 cm). When this picture was taken, Dec 2010, he was two years old, 3.75" (9.5 cm), 4.5 oz (130 g). We expect him to reach an adult size of 6-8" (30-40 cm) so a tank upgrade in in his future next year.
WOW! That tanks amazing! I wish I had a tank like that!

Large female Saw-shelled turtle
That is a REALLY impressive tank! Well done!
Is it just me or does that painting make you want to go out and buy a kinder surprise?
Glad you like it Dean, but this one is already spoken for. This was my first attempt at painting a turtle, I am working on another one and hoping to finish it this week end will post it when its done.
are you going to sell it? how much would you ask? Do you have anywhere that we can see other paintings of yours?
Hehe. Very good photo!
This inlet has now been changed to one that goes the length of the box with about 4 or 5 outlets. Much more efficient
Your baby long-neck has stomatitis (mouth rot). It will need antibiotics and to be thoroughly cleaned/debrided. This may even need to be done under sedation by a Vet.
It incredible. Well done Megan.
