The Musk Turtle or Stinkpot: the Perfect Pet Turtle, Part 1 & II The Common Musk Turtle or Stinkpot - My Choice for Perfect Pet Turtle - Part 1 Musk and Mud Turtles - Introducing Five Interesting Species - Part 2
Hi..yes, same in several other states. But those not found in-state are usually legal, and several are bred and appear in the trade sometimes...razorback is especially nice, even smaller than stinkpot; striped muds, yellow mud a bit larger, but very manageable, same behaviors. See part 2 of the article and let me know if you need other suggestions, enjoy, FrankI've always wanted a stinkpot. They are native to here though, so can't have them. They are too cute!
I' also cursed with an infinity for aquatic animals of all types! Favoring aquatic insects these days...some java moss or plants keep tanks fine for months on end!I particularly like the stinkpots. My next choice would be eastern mud turtles or 3 striped mud turtles. I just usually don't like to keep water turtles. I hate dealing water heaters and keeping the water clean! That's why I stick to box turtles.
Hmm... that being said, lol, maybe you can help me. I'm having a bit of an issue with insects in my tank...I' also cursed with an infinity for aquatic animals of all types! Favoring aquatic insects these days...some java moss or plants keep tanks fine for months on end!
