Temperament and  Behavior

Despite how adorable they appear, don’t think that these small turtles will be tame and sociable. Mud turtles tend to be grumpy and will bite if they feel threatened or uneasy with their curled beaks. This is only one of many reasons not to handle a pet mud turtle until absolutely necessary.

Some people get worried if they suddenly detect a bad stench emanating from their mud turtle. Mud turtles are related to musk turtles, and they both possess the ability to ward off predators by secreting a foul-smelling liquid. Owners should be aware that while most mud turtles kept in captivity never employ this defense strategy, mud turtles can and do emit a musky odor.

Mud Turtle Habitat

Freshwater ecosystems are home to mud turtles. They favor little ponds with muddy bottoms, both temporary and permanent. Mud turtles can be found buried beneath the mud as the ponds dry up.

Feeding

As omnivores, mud turtles like eating animal products such arthropods, worms, tiny fish, and fish eggs. A single egg to almost a dozen can be laid by a female mud turtle, depending on her size and general health.

Light

In order for the turtle’s digestive system to adequately absorb calcium, UVB lamps assist in the production of vitamin D3. Every 12 hours the UVB bulb should be lit, and it should be changed every six months. It will exhaust its capacity to produce intangible UVB photons even if it doesn’t burn out before the visible portion of the bulb burns out.

Heat

Make sure that no area of the ecosystem becomes very cold. All turtle species require both heat and UVB lighting. Large heat bulbs that are intended to keep your mud turtle warm heating up the entire cage that mud turtles use. To keep the habitat at a water temperature of 74–78 degrees Fahrenheit, conventional reptile heat bulbs and a separate UVB bulb should be used. Between 78 and 82 degrees Fahrenheit should be the ambient tank temperature.
