    Hey everybody! I own a yellow mud turtle and was looking for some care info on it. I've had him for 5 years now, and he seems to be doing good. I keep him in a 20 gallon enclosure and keep the water level about 2-4 inches. He has a basking spot and a few artificial plants. He also has a filter. I keep the water about room temperature. Here's some pics:

    He's a cute little guy! One quick little question... the darker coloration towards the end of his shell, is that just his shell color or did something happen to him?

    I got him from my neighbor. He was going to college and couldn't keep him anymore, so I adopted him. He foud him in texas, I believe. Of course, i can't drive the turtle to texas and let him go. So I kept him. He's probably been hit by a motorboat once or twice, cause he has a few scrapes on his shell and a little chunk missing on the edge. The dark spot is algae growth.
