African Mud Turtle Hatchling (Pelusios castaneus)

Well started African Mud turtles (Pelusios castaneus) available at Redfoot Ranch. These were captive bred in Florida in 2017. They are hearty, healthy babies that will make fascinating pets. They have great appetites and have been feeding on a variety of turtle pellets. African Mud Turtles have a big personality, although adults typically don’t get much larger than 9”. Being that they stay fairly small, these are a great turtle for a home setup.
