We have been feeding it turtle food and occationally some small feeder goldfish and earth worms. He/she (Max) is farely tame but will shreek when scared. Max is approximately 11 years old and six inches in diameter.

We are his third family. I would like to know more about his natural territory and eating habits. I would eventually like to build him an out door pond/habitat and would like to know if he would servive this in out climate.

Any information on this would be much appriciated. Thank You, we look forward to any information we can get. Anita
