Reeve's Turtle (Chinemys Reevesi)

The Reeve's Turtle comes from mainland China and Japan, where it like the Black Bridged Leaf Turtle, is poached for food to near extinction and is now classed as threatened. Hot House Turtles is proud is support Save The Asian Turtle Species, where it is hoped that one day Reeve"s Turtles will be released into safe sancturies in their country of origin, free from poaches.

The female Reeve's Turtle growns to approximately 20cms whilst the male will obtain 12-15cms. The male has a very large tail in comparison to the females. It is unknown just how long they will live.

The shell of the Reeve's Turtle ranges from a yellowish-brown to a dark brown or black shade, while the skin can range from an olive or grey-green shade to black.

The Reeve's Turtle is very hardy and is ideal for those who want to keep something different but they are in short supply at this stage.
