Spiny Softshells (Apalone spiniferus)

TYPE: Soft Shelled Turtles  |      CARE SHEET:  

BASIC INFORMATION:

Spiny Softshells are very good community turtles. They're excellent swimmers and do well in partly or mostly water tanks, with plants and other under water objects. They will lie buried in sand with just their head exposed waiting to surprise prey. They quickly settle in and will swim very actively about their tanks.

Spiny Softshells quickly learn to come to feeding and will liven up any tank. They are mainly carnivores taking fish, pellets, worms, meat, and crustaceans. Once four to five inches, they also make good pond turtles.
