With its tiny natural range and strict federal and state protection, this beautiful Map Turtle is not often offered for sale – and then only with a hefty price tag! Serious keepers with proper permits and outdoor facilities would do well to focus on this species, as captive breeding is rare. Other map turtle fans should sharpen their skills on other more common captive bred species until such time when these striking turtles are less endangered – and less expensive!
