Housing turtles

(Temperance, MI)

Can I house a Spiny Soft Shell with a Yellow Belly Cooter together in a 55 gallon aquarium. My softshell is almost always burried, but when she comes out I need to know they won't fight or anything like that. I looked everywhere on the web but couldn't find an answer. Thank you so much for your input.

Thank you, Dana,

You care about chelonians, and I like people like you who help. I know you weren't trying to get me trouble.

Keep it slow and steady.

I'm sorry! I thought since I quoted it and all it would be ok! I'll remember that in the future though! ~wink-dana

I wouldn't recommended unless the keeper was very experienced. From the Care Sheet:


Note to Anonymous--

I can't copy things from another Web site on this one. I've taken out the material and put in a link instead.

Keep it slow and steady
