Common musk turtles are known for their feisty and interesting personalities. They love slow moving and still waters, making them perfect for thriving in your pond. These are fun turtles to observe. These are very active turtles that like to climb on logs and around the shore. The Common Musk turtle has a shell that will only grow to about 7” in length. They’re native to North American regions as far north as Quebec, Canada, so they’re a very hardy species. They are primarily carnivorous and will enjoy feeding on the insects that inhabit your pond.
