The Painted Wood
Turtle is a gorgeous turtle that lives primarily on the land, it does require a
large basin of shallow water that it can enter as they will only defecate in
water. Temperatures must not drop below 20?C as they become at risk of a Respiratory Infection. Kept
in the right environment these are an amazing animal to care for as they are
very intelligent and can be trained.

Care must be taken
to keep the water clean and fresh, a filtration system can be provided or an easy
to remove tub. These turtles are very active and will climb, vivaria must be
secure and closed to avoid any potential escapes.
