Chinese box turtles are thought of as perhaps the “crown jewel” of all box turtle species. Because of their rarity, Chinese box turtles are one of the most expensive box turtles sold in the USA. Keeping a Chinese box turtle is quite simple, some people raise their babies completely aquatic with just a couple of basking / dry dock options. Others keep them in a 50/50 terrestrial to water habitat. Lastly, some keep them completely on land. Keep in mind that keeping them totally dry is not best for the Chinese box turtle for sale. For proper shell growth, the turtle should have access to soak in water when he/she pleases. In addition without proper dry dock and basking options, the baby Chinese box turtle will endure shell rot. For these reasons, it is recommended that you set up a proper Chinese box turtle habitat for your new shelled friend.
Other names for the Chinese box turtle
Sometimes Chinese box turtles are also referred to as snake eating turtles”. They also can be called yellow Marginated box turtles, or even Golden-headed box turtles. Chinese Boxes are native to the sub-tropical and temperate areas of Taiwan, China and even Japan. Like other box turtle species, the Chinese box has a unique hinge on their plastron that allows box turtles to withdraw their arms, legs, and head fully into their shells and seal up like a box. These turtles can remain n this “closed” position for hours. Chinese box turtles may reach shell sizes of 5-12 inches long.
Chines box turtle for sale – Chinese box turtle habitat and Enclosure
Like with most species of turtles, when considering a habitat, the larger the enclosure is the better enclosure! Chinese box turtle hatchlings and small juveniles can be kept in glass 20-gallon aquariums but will outgrow them and will spend a significant amount of time trying to “walk through” the glass. Aquariums for adult box turtles must be large not only to offer the appropriate space needed for daily exercise. Consider that they need enrichment via foraging behaviors but also to allow for better air circulation. Using anything from 40-55-gallon aquariums or larger will be suitable for adults.
