RES are illegal to sell here in florida, as they are invasive. I have seen them at pet stores, just not for sale. I like them, just as I like all turtles, well, except one...the alligator snapper is not one I would enjoy....that thing gets huge, and can be dangerous as well....75 gallon planted tank with discus, GBR's and cardinals

Woooooo...That explain why my turtle die when I was young...
Now, I know what to do for the next one!
yes, RES are illegal in France too now... A lot of people release them in the "wild"... And now you have children bitten by big RES in lake, and lots of fish disappearing...
Still they're cute...

theyre illegal here in alberta, government thinks kids will get salmonella from them. funny thing is that people sell turtles on ads in the city, people smuggle them in from other provinces, and ive even seen some smaller pet stores illegally sell them

Southeren Painted M 3.5-5", F 5.5-7"
most map turtles will be in the 3-8" range
if you can find one the spotted turtle will max out at about 5" or so
if these are to big there are a bunch of small tortoises that only bet about 4" or so. just depends what you want
check out kingsnake.com in the turtle classifieds heres the link
