Softshell Turtle Black Rayed behavior

An interesting animal, the Black Rayed Softshell Turtle is, sadly, disappearing from the wild. Though they get very large, hese beautiful turtles have been kept in captivity, although if you choose to keep one, you should look for a captive bred animal to help conserve wild populations.

In the wild, Black Rayed Softshell Turtles often inhabit freshwater rivers. They are never found far from water, since they have aquatic habits. In the wild, they eat a variety of invertebrates, fish, and possibly even aquatic vegetation on occasion. Unfortunately, not much is known about the habits in the wild. Because Black Rayed Softshell Turtles are rather shy of humans, they should be kept in a quiet area. They may defend their territory against other turtles, so they should be kept alone if they are not being bred.
