Just a german turtle enthusiast. Collecting and sharing knowledge about fresh- and brackish water turtles.

I'm always using the scientific names of the Turtles. So everybody can understand what species I'm talking about (regardless of the native language) and to avoid confusion.

My focus is on (north and middle) american turtles.

I'm breeding some Graptemys and Sternotherus species at the moment and have some years of experience in breeding Trachemys scripta and Pseudemys species.

Because of their rarity I never had the chance of breeding indigene Emys. But I hope they will make it and we will see our own turtle population back in Germany!
Until that day I'll make my experience with North American species and try to help with their survival and especially the education about them in Germany.
