Diamondback Terrapin


Tortoise town offers some of the nicest captive bred terrapins for sale in the world.  Currently, we have some gorgeous captive bred Northern diamondback terrapin for sale.  Also, we offer well started baby diamondback terrapins for sale and yearlings.  We highly recommend the well started baby Northern Diamondback terrapins for sale over terrapin hatchlings for sale.  Well started babies, yearlings or juveniles are going to be much easier to acclimate and care for.

Northern Diamondback terrapins are turtles with diamond-shaped markings and grooves on the scutes (plates) of their carapaces (top shells), which range from medium gray or brown to nearly black.

Their skin color is a pale to dark gray or black, flecked with dark spots, blotches or stripes. The hingeless plastron (bottom shell) is yellow to green or black and may be marked with dark blotches. No two individual diamondback terrapins are exactly alike in coloration and pattern.

Their feet are strongly webbed; the hind feet are especially large and flat. These large webbed feet and muscular legs make terrapins strong swimmers, a necessary ability when living in an environment with daily tidal changes and strong currents.
