Texas Maps (Graptemys versa)

TYPE: Map Turtles  


Found only in one Texas river system, Texas maps are one of the more prized map turtles; and are only available in limited quantities. Golden yellow to orange striping on their skin, and even faintly on their olive shells, sets them apart from grayer, more common maps. Adult females develop very broad heads, and all sizes are primarily carnivores - taking pellets, fish meat, insects, crustaceans and especially mollusks.

Texas maps do well in tanks and in water and land setups. Adults can be kept in outdoor ponds in summer months, or in warmer climates.
