Leaf Turtle behavior

The Leaf Turtle, which is one of the smallest turtles in the world, comes from Asia. It is known by a variety of other names, including "Ryukyu-Yama-Game," "Ryukyu Black Breasted Leaf Turtle," "Jagged Shell Turtle," "Vietnamese Leaf Turtle," "Black-Breasted Leaf Turtle," and "Chinese Leaf Turtle." This little turtle can be quite nervous when first introduced to captivity. Once it becomes acclimated to its new environment, it can make an excellent pet.

A terrestrial animal, the Leaf Turtle spends most of its time on land, though they do soak swim and soak in water sometimes. They are from a moderate climate, where temperatures range between the high 80s and mid 60s (Fahrenheit) throughout the year. They are usually found in mountainous areas, and spend most of their time burrowing and exploring on the ground.
