Cuora flavomarginata, Chinese Box Turtle or
Yellow-Margined Box Turtle

I have several groups of this species.







Cuora flavomarginata Information and Care

There are several excellent care sheets on the web, so only the most basic information is given here.

Wild habitat: Southern China, Taiwan, and the Ryuku Islands of Japan.

Captive Care: These turtles are from tropical areas, and so require warm, humid conditions. They mainly live on land, but do need access to water for drinking and soaking. They are omnivorous and tend to eat more protein than fruits and vegetables.
