Species: (Coura amboinensis)
Origin: This animal originates from Southeast Asia.
Size And Longevity: This animal gets 8 to 10 inches in size and can live up to 30 years or more in captivity.
Habitat And Caging Requirements:
These are a very fascinating animal to own as a pet, the best way to raise these turtles I have found is to offer them live foods such as they are use to eating in the wild as soon as your' new pet arrives, in the wild they are use to beginning their feeding with slugs, small fish, frogs, and many small insects, in captivity this diet is best supplemented with meal worms, and super worms which can be purchased with your' turtle right here at Reptile City when you order your' turtle, this is a very beautiful animal, it has a dark olive carapace and three yellow stripes on it's head.
You can decorate the tank with wood, live plant's, aquarium sand or gravel about 3 to 4 inches deep and medium size to large size gravel does best, this species seems to do best in a tropical like aquarium setup, I would also suggest a submersible heater and a submersible filter, it will take at least a 60 to 75 gallon tank for 1 adult, also add something to climb up on such as a rock to get it's head above the water to breath and bask, as adults they do best in an amphibious setup with part land and part water, as babies you could start them out in just a small 20 or 30 gallon tank, this is a great pick for an indoor aquarium and a great pick for the beginner as this is a very hardy animal, this turtle is almost fully aquatic and loves to swim.
Temperature And Lighting Requirements:
You want to use low wattage bulbs' for best results' to avoid over heating of your' pet as over heating could cause your' pet to dehydrate, these animals' seem to fair well at temperatures of (80 to 85 degrees F.) their should also be a basking area for your pet, you can also use full spectrum fluorescent lighting, and if kept indoors I would also suggest UVB lighting as well, in the wild this animal never hibernates.
Feeding And Nutrition:
For feeding your' pet, these animals are primarily omnivorous and in the wild the feed on fish, mollusk, and small insects, as pets they fair well on fish, super worms, meal worms, and night crawlers, green vegetables and crickets.
Handling And Care:
"Alright for the care and handling of your pet", I know these guys' are so cute that your' going to want to handle them all the them time right?, but when you first get them it is a good idea put them in their new home and mostly enjoy watching them get use to their new home and feed them well for at least a couple of day's which is really a good idea for any new pet that you get of any kind and then gradually start too handle them from time to time, this is called acclimating your' animal which cut's down stress which in turn make's you have a happier healthier pet, after that handle them gradually to tame them, they seem too be pretty docile.
