Meet Lubanzi African Mud

I'm a male African mud turtle (an aquatic turtle) (Pelusios castaneus) for adoption in the Baltimore area. I need at least a 55 gallon aquarium with a basking platform, a strong canister filter, a water heater, heat light, and UVB light. An underwater cave or artificial plants for hiding would be awesome, too. I eat pellets, but like a treat of an insect or earthworm or plain, cooked meet. I was a pet for 8 years, so I'm probably about 12-15 years old, with another 15 -20 years to go.

I'm for adoption because my person grew up and moved away, and the parents travel too much to care for me.

Here's a great book on aquatics, and it can be downloaded FOR FREE https://www.lulu.com/shop/richard-lunsford/captive-care-of-north-american-water-turtles/ebook/product-17551523.html

If interested in adoption, please email matts_adoptions@hotmail.com and INCLUDE YOUR CITY AND STATE in the email. You'll need to complete an application, and if approved, send pictures of my enclosure before being approved to adopt. The volunteers at MATTS can meet near downtown Baltimore on week days or in Parkton, MD 21120 on weekends. I can be shipped, but shipping may cost $45-$100, depending on where you live.
