What is a Red Bellied Sideneck Turtle?

Red Bellied Sideneck Turtles (Emydura subglobosa) are a medium sized freshwater turtle from Australasia growing to an average size of around 20-25cm, They are very good swimmers and require a large tank when they are fully grown (250L +) as with River cooters they also require a basking area where they can dry themselves and raise their body temperature. When buying Red Bellied Sideneck Turtles from hatchlings it is quite easy with regular handling to make them tame and friendly.

How do I keep a Mud Turtle?

An ideal set of to keep Red Bellied Sideneck Turtles would be in a glass aquarium with a filter (to keep water clean), a heater (to keep water at a constant 25 degrees), and UV light (to encourage correct shell growth). They also need a landed area where the can get out of the water such as Turtle Dock or flat stone with a basking lamp above it to help them to dry off and raise their body temperature . It is important to remember that it takes three to four years for a hatchling Red Bellied Sideneck Turtle to grow to full size and therefore, to help socialize the Turtles, it much better to keep the hatchlings in smaller enclosure (30-40 litres) to start with; upgrading to a larger home as they grow.

What do I feed my Red Bellied Sideneck Turtle?

Red Bellied Sideneck Turtles are omnivores and in the wild would eat vegetation and such things as fish and insects. For your pet Turtle however, there are various complete dried and frozen foods that contain all of the animals dietary requirements.

How big and what sex will my Baby Red Bellied Sideneck Turtle be?

The baby Red Bellied Sideneck Turtles we sell are approximately one inch long (Shell length front to back). Due to their small size and juvenile status we are unable to sex these turtles.
