Spotted Turtle Health Information

Ideally, SpottedTurtles should be housed outdoors when weather permits. They should have a pool and land area, preferably with a muddy land area between the two. In captivity, Spotted Turtles should be fed a variety of foods such as commercial turtle diet, fish, tadpoles, salamander, earthworms, crustaceans, and a variety of different insects.

Gravid female Spotted Turtles will dig a nest with their hind legs and there deposit a clutch, which can contain anywhere from two to eight eggs, the average being 4. Females in captivity have been known to lay many clutches, as many as 3 per season with an average of 1 to 2. Depending largely upon the temperature, incubation can take anywhere from 60 to 80 days. Temperature can predetermine the sex of the hatchlings. Lower temperatures tend to produce males, while higher temperatures tend to produce females.
