My New Muddie Buddy!

Just some pics of my newest addition, a redcheek scorpion mud turtle. The guy at the store think he may be ab integrade though since his red isn't very bright.

Very small guy though. About 6 inches and seems fully grown, but not sure. Needs a name but for nownjust calling him Muddie Buddy (yup, soooo original lol).

Re: My New Muddie Buddy!

I'm not much of a turtle guy, but it's got a cool looking face. Kind of reminds me of a grumpy old man of sorts...lol. Good luck with your new semiaquatic friend.

Re: My New Muddie Buddy!

Haha, thanks guys!

I will most likely be getting him one of those Christmas tree tubs come December and a full canister filter to help with the mess as apparently turtles are filthy little beings lol.

And yeah, I am not usually kne for turtles myself, but this one was just too cute and full of personality!

Re: My New Muddie Buddy!

I find mud turtles to be neat because their shape is rather distinctive compared to your typical slider-style turtle. They also stay pretty small so they don't require secure outdoor ponds like most species. And, of course, their food "begging" behavior is rather endearing.

Something that you might want to look into is stock tanks. They're generally an ugly black color but they're designed to hold water, many have a drain in the bottom that is easily plumbed for canister filters, the plastic is tough enough that you can screw things to the top edge, and they generally sell for $0.50 a gallon or less.

Re: My New Muddie Buddy!

He is probably one of the cutest turtle faces I have ever seen second to the Mata Mata.

Re: My New Muddie Buddy!

Thanks everyone!

I admit, they may be a new 'thing' for me lol. Already looking into getting a 2nd one! Oh lordie lol.

It won't be another mud though. Going to put more thougt into it and plan a really large tank with a nice land set up and possibly add some fish. =)

Re: My New Muddie Buddy!

Looks great! I'm also not a big turtle person but he is interesting. I've thought about a tortoise but every time I look I always think I could fit a lot of snakes in that kind of space...
