Species: Florida cooter
Age: Adult, age unknown
Size: Large (8+ inches)
Minimum aquarium size: 100+ gallon stock tank (no glass)
I’m a healthy female Florida cooter and I am available for adoption. I was on display at a nature center for awhile after my first keeper moved away. I have been well loved and I enjoy the company of people. Because I am a big girl and likely to get bigger, I will need an experienced keeper and a stock tank or indoor pond. My kind come from a warm climate and I have never lived outdoors, so I will need to be an inside turtle.
I eat a very healthy diet of greens and turtle food with occasional shrimp and mealworm treats. My stock tank setup will need a strong filter, heat and UVB lighting, and a basking spot. Debbie at Dancing Turtle can assist you with setup options.
