Adult Pairs of Eastern Painted Turtles For Sale

Chrysemys picta picta

A large species of pond turtle from the Eastern US, our Eastern Painted Turtles for sale offer little be desired if you're in the market for a moderately large and attractive turtle species.  With a deep olive-green brown to black carapace and flaming tones of orange, yellow and read adorning the majority of their underside, they may be one of the most attractive pond turtle species living stateside.  A very srong candidate for best beginner's turtle species, they are not only very attractive, but also less commonly kept than the ubiquitous Red-eared Slider Turtles, which have become legally dubious and even environmentally invasive in many parts of the country due mostly to careless distribution and irresponsible ownership.  Eastern Painteds also score points on the beginner's chart, as they are actually reasonably docile, allowing for much more interaction than many of their cousins who will more readily scamper away at the sign of a human.  The older these guys get, the more relaxed they seem to be.  Captive care is as simple as a pond turtle can get, and they are hardy and quite long-lived as well.  This species will readily feed on any high quality commercial turtle diet, in either pellet or stick form, though they certainly enjoy live fish as well.  This price is for a 1.1 pair...perfect for someone looking to cut their teeth on turtle breeding!

Bottom Line?

Reasonably large, hardy, easy to care for, very attractive, docile, and the bearer of a very healthy appetite...whether you're absolutely brand new to reptiles or a seasoned herpetologist, it's tough not to be enamored by the charm and beauty of the Eastern Painted Turtle.
