Softshell Turtle Eastern Spiny history

In the wild, Eastern Spiny Soft Shell Turtles range from Canada's provinces of Ontario and Quebec through the eastern United States south to Mexico. They are quite common in the pet trade. In the wild, humans hunt Eastern Spiny Soft Shell Turtles. Eggs and neonates are often eaten by carnivorous mammals or fish, as well. Chemicals used to kill fish also adversely affect them. The Eastern Spiny Soft Shell Turtle remains strong throughout its range and at present, there is not much concern that these turtles will soon become endangered.
