Golden Thread Turtles are beautiful animals that you’ll have plenty of opportunities to observe because they really enjoy basking. They are omnivorous and really enjoy the turtle foods we offer at MyTurtleStore.com. Because they enjoy basking so much, its important that you purchase a nice UVB light source, and we offer a variety of those as well. Golden Thread Turtles are native to swamps, ponds, lakes and rivers and can tolerate a wide temperature range. A submersible heater is recommended, but they can withstand cooler temperatures when kept in an outdoor pond. They should be kept indoors in climates with cold winters. At MyTurtleStore.com you’ll find everything you need to create the perfect environment for your beautiful, new Golden Thread Turtle!
