Hatchling Emys Orbicularis ** New photos added **

Post by MikeC » Wed Nov 09, 2011 11:01 am

Had him a few days. Photos are the best I could do so far with the low light / macro / super macro on my camera. Oh, for a digital SLR ....

Feeding and basking. A bit green on the shell, I might give him a gentle tooth brush scrub.

Where did you get it from?

I hope they are being bred here in the UK.

Rom,

Apparently from a Belgian breeder, I bought from a guy here.

However, you have now seen the post from JanS who has bred in Cornwall :-), I pointed JanS in this direction. I would love to have had one of those but the hatchling I did get was very local to me and made much more sense economically.

You may have noticed I have been after one for quite some time so am very pleased. The one I have looks very similar to that shown in the for sale post so I'm hoping the markings come out well.

Michael

Does this shell make my tail look big ?

I'm going to bump this :-)

Are these the longest tails of any hatchling or are there longer?

Check out Platysternon megacephalum - the Chinese big headed turtle ~wink-smile

Reeves turtles and chinese stripe necked (Mauremys Sinensis) have long tails as hatchings, as do common snappers (amongst others)

Emys do have long tails as youngsters and if kept together it will result in a lot of tail nipping.

Hello,

Could you advise me where I might buy this breed in the UK?

Kind regards,
Cinzia
