What is a River Cooter Turtle?

River Cooters (Pseudemys concinna) are a medium sized freshwater turtle. Males grow approximately Six to Eight inches in size (shell front to back) and Females can grow to anything from Eight to Fifteen inches in size, At adult size they should be kept in an aquarium with a minimum size of 36" x 18" x 18" River Cooters are a basking species and so they require a landed area that has heating coming from above.

How do I keep a River Cooter?

An ideal way to keep River Cooters would be in a glass aquarium with a good filter (to keep water clean), a heater (to keep water at a constant 25 degrees), and UVB light (to encourage correct shell growth). They also need a landed area with a spot bulb or other heater where they can get out of the water and dry off- Turtle Docks can be used as landed areas or slate that has been securely placed on top of rocks.

What do I feed my River Cooter?
River Cooters are omnivores and in the wild would eat vegetation and such things as fish and insects. For your pet River Cooter however, there are various complete dried and frozen foods that contain all of the animals dietary requirements.
