A few days ado I saw for the first time a pair of Adanson's mud turtles ( Pelusios adansonii ) at a local Reptilehouse. Also a house-bred young was on show.
Now I want to ask if anybody can provide some more information about this rarely kept and bred species. I know it's kept in Europe at Iguana Reptilehouse Vlissingen ( the Netherlands, where I saw them ) and at Lisabon Zoo ( Portugal ).
Further it seems to have bred at the Colombus Zoo ( USA ) in the late 1980-ties ) but further I wasn't able to find anything more.
Can anybody tell me more about husbandry of this species ( size of enclosure, air- and watertemperature, food, breeding ( clutchsize, incubationtemperature and incubationtime ) and so on.
Also I would be intrested to know if anybody can provide me with a identification-key for the Pelusios- mud turtles.
Anybody with experience with this species who can help ????
