Painted Turtle Western behavior

The Western Painted Turtle is one of the most active, colorful, and comical of all turtles that a pet owner could want.

The Western Painted Turtle can do well as a first time turtle owner pet. They are extremely hardy and they are easy to keep in groups. They can be kept with other Painted Turtles and do not have to be kept with their subspecies alone. In fact, it is not rare to find hybrid hatchlings within this species. The Western Painted Turtle may be shy when it comes to being held, but they can become accostomed to it when handled regularly. They are semi-aquatic, so you will need to be able to provide them with a land and pool area.
