    Default Small aquatic turtle legal in Oregon?

    I've owned fish, but never a turtle and am wanting to know what would be the best options for a first time turtle owner that will stay relatively small. I called the local chain pet stores and the only aquatic turtles that are sold are African side neck turtle. After googling it, their adult size vary from being in the perfect range to rather large. I want to do research before jumping in to owning a turtle and be able to properly care for it. Any help would greatly be appreciated.

    I'd say start looking into mud turtles, relatively small species.

    Do consider that it's a different ballgame this. Theres extremely few full time aquatic species, they have different needs than fish, don't mix well and will certainly live several decades.

    Thanks and yes thats why I'm trying to figure out as much in advance as possible. I use to have a black rhom piranha, but he passed away this last year so I don't have any fish anymore, just empty fish tanks. :(
