Spotted Turtles are very special turtles with unique “polka-dot” markings that you won’t find in any other turtle species. Every Spotted Turtle is unique because the yellow and orange markings on every turtle are different. Their markings make them very unique, but these turtles have great personalities, too! Spotted Turtles enjoy basking, so it’s important that you pick up a light and heat source for them to thrive in. They need water, but they aren’t avid swimmers, so it’s important that you provide them with shallow depths. You will need a filter to keep the water clean. The water needs to be cooler and very clean. Check out the supplies at MyTurtleStore.com and see the lights, heaters, and filters we have, along with anything else you’ll need for your turtle.
