I agree Central and South American Wood Turtles that are wild caught, are usually loaded with parasites, which donít affect them too much in the wild, but being put under the strain of transportation, confinement, and finally the adjustment to captivity, could cause them to parish.

With that said, they are very personable turtles, eat just about any fruit and vegetable that you put in front of them, as well as processed turtle foods. Generally speaking, they do not do well in cold climates, or where temperatures get colder. Many people just bring them in for the winter, as they do not hibernate.

A google search will provide abundant information for you to research.

You may check for animals to be adopted out by your local turtle/tortoise club.

The seller you mentioned in Florida has a good reputation.

Bill
