Get ready to fall in love with the Pink Bellied Sideneck Turtle, one of the most uniquely charming creatures in the reptile kingdom. This adorable aquatic species has a striking appearance with its vibrant pink plastron (underside) that immediately catches the eye and warms the heart. Their carapace (top shell) boasts an intricate design, with a captivating mix of greens and browns contrasting beautifully with their rosy underbellies.
Their name derives from their distinctive trait of withdrawing their head sideways into their shell when they feel threatened. This distinctive 'sideneck' feature and their friendly disposition make them popular among turtle enthusiasts.
Basic Care Information:
Pink Bellied Sideneck Turtles are aquatic creatures, requiring a large tank or pond with ample swimming space and a basking area to rest and soak up the heat. The water temperature should be maintained around 75°F - 85°F and the basking spot should have a temperature of about 90°F. UVB lighting is essential for their shell health and overall well-being.
These turtles are omnivores, so their diet should consist of a balance of aquatic turtle pellets, fresh vegetables, and live foods such as mealworms, snails, or small fish.
