This breed of turtle takes a lot of maintenance (ie. tank cleaning, supplies, etc). They are gorgeous to look at and a great pet for young children. Just be careful. As with all turtles, they are known to carry disease. Practicing proper safety while handling them is recommended. Always wash your hands after handling your turtle. They are sluggish so don't expect an extremely entertaining pet. Perfect for those people that want a pet but can't devote their full attention to it every second of every day.
