Category: Mud and Musk Turtles
We occasionally have a few Adult Red Cheeked Mud Turtles available. They are now one of the hardest species to get - so if you see that we have one or two available - don't hesitate - they go very quickly... To be put on our list of people to notify when adults become available - just email us...
Easily one of the prettiest colored turtles in all the world, the Red Cheeked Mud Turtle is actually a brightly colored sub species of the Scorpion Mud Turtle. The Latin (scientific) name Kinosternon scorpioides cruentatum means“blood spotted”in honor of this species' bright red or orange head color. Red Cheeked Mud turtles are found in lakes, streams and slow moving rivers from Nicaragua, into Honduras and southern Mexico.
Red Cheeked Mud turtles do very well in glass tanks and warm weather ponds. They stay small and get along with quite well with other similar sized Mud and Musk turtles. Males tend to have the brightest head coloring and our breeding colony has exceptionally brilliant color - even for this species. We raise our hatchlings on pellets, giving earth worms and cut fish once or twice a week - but any protein food is readily accepted. Not many breeders work with this handsome species - so their availability is limited.
