Pink Bellied Side Neck Turtles are considered to be the most elegant and colorful of all the side neck turtle species. They have beautiful pink bellies, a dark shell, and yellow stripes behind their eyes. The bright markings will fade a little as these exquisite turtles mature. Pink Bellied Side Neck Turtles are somewhat shy and skittish, but can be a hardy species when taken care of properly. They love to bask, so it’s important that they have a good light and heat source, which you can find at MyTurtleStore.com.
