Product Description

Central American Ornate Wood Turtle For Sale  

Rhinoclemmys pulcherrima manni  

Maxing out at just over 8 inches, these turtles can sometimes display an almost otherworldly array of colors on their carapace (top of shell).  Despite their exotic appearance, however, they are not difficult to care for, and can make a good choice for a beginner willing to learn their needs.  Reaching adult sizes of about 9 inches or less, they're not terribly large, and thus are not too difficult to house.   Primarily aquatic as youngsters, they grow to spend a substantial amount of their time on land, and should be provided with suitable amounts of both to ensure their health and comfort.  Mazuri turtle and tortoise diet works well with them, but they typically do well on a mixed greens and veggie diet with occasional protein in the form of feeder insects. There are not many other turtles that can compare to how colorful and lovely are these!  

Bottom Line?  

Extremely beautiful, and moderate enough in size so as to be manageable to house, this species is a bit exotic, and with slightly specialized needs that suggest they should really be kept by someone with a bit of experience in turtle husbandry.
