Meet Guppy W Painted
I eat pellets such as Omega One and greens, and my aquarium would need a very strong filter. I need a basking platform in my tank, too, so sit under a heat light and UVB light that's on for 14 hours a day if I'm not in a pond.
A NJ adopter would need to get a permit after I'm adopted. She is also legal in NY, MD, WV, and VA. I CANNOT be released to the wild because I was hatched in captivity. In NJ, since our adoption contract serves as a receipt for a permit (that can be obtained after adopting), visit https://www.state.nj.us/dep/fgw/exotic_apps.htm
REQUEST AN ADOPTION APPLICATION from email@example.com
Please INCLUDE YOUR CITY AND STATE when contacting MATTS. An application will be e-mailed to you. Once completed, the application can be returned, and if approved, you'll then have to submit pictures of your set-up before picking up a turtle. Pictures of examples of how I should be kept are included with my picture.

A great e-book for beginners is Red-Eared Sliders (Animal Planet Pet Care Library) by Katrina Smith (on Amazon or in some stores).

PLEASE HELP OTHER TURTLES by spreading the word - baby turtles grow into big turtles! They do not stay small - they do not grow to the size of their enclosure! Please don't buy hatchling turtles at vacation tourist spots. It's illegal in ALL 50 states to sell a turtle this small. Like turtles but can't have one? Want to help? MATTS has fliers and educational material at www.matts-turtles.org and accepts tax-deductible donations at MATTS, P.O. Box 341, Highland, MD 20777. We help over 100 displaced pet turtles a year!
