Diamondbacks in the wild are constantly threatened by habitat destruction and other human involvements, such as crab fishing. However, a diamondback pet can live for over forty years. Housing and breeding diamondbacks is a great way to keep them alive, but they must be cared for correctly. Owning a terrapin is a big responsibility. Anyone considering the job should be prepared and knowledgeable enough to treat their turtle well. Toa Payoh Pet shop sells dwarf hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs and hermit crabs. Terrapins not for sale.

In the past terrapins have been unfortunate enough to earn a rather bad reputation. When the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles entered public awareness in the 1990’s thousands of school children decided that they wanted to keep their very own Leonardo or Donatello. Sadly, the solution offered up by pet shops was far from ideal.Today, keeping terrapins has really come of age. If you’re interested in purchasing your own pet terrapin then read on to discover how best to care for these fantastic little reptiles at home…Its a sad tale, for certain. But things have changed an awful lot in recent years. No longer a “fad” pet, these days we not only have a range of terrapin species which grow to a far more reasonable size, but we also know ever more about keeping these fantastic animals happy and healthy for the long term.That said, terrapins do require some specialist care, and arguably take more time, effort and money to keep when compared to many pet reptiles. Potential owners should be certain they do their research and are happy with the necessary investment before bringing their terrapin home from the pet shop…There’s something about keeping terrapins which makes them special. Maybe its how cute they are as hatchlings, or maybe its how graceful they are swimming about, but keeping terrapins as pets is a decidedly enjoyable pursuit. You’ll get to watch to watch them swimming about, going about their everyday lives.Pond and marsh turtles include many familiar North American species of the genera Graptemys, Chrysemys, Malaclemys, Clemmys, Thrachemys [Pseudemys], Deirocheiys, and Emydoidea. The common names of this group include map turtles, painted turtles, diamondback terrapins, pond turtles, cooters, redbelly turtles, sliders, chicken turtles and Blanding's turtles. There are many differences in habitat, diet and lifestyles of these turtles. Use a field guide to distinguish which kind(s) you have. Earnst and Barbour (1989) offer habitat and life history notes in every account. There are some shared characteristics: they bask and need a "haul-out" place with a temperature gradient; the water should be maintained between 75-85°F (24-30°C) year-round; they are usually more carnivorous as juveniles than as adults, and they all make good pets. Diamondback terrapins (Malaclemys) live in brackish (salty water) and eat shellfish. Owners should plan carefully before undertaking this type of turtle. Some species of these are in trouble in the wild. Care should be taken that no threatened or endangered animals are added to your collection without proper permits.
