Hi, I’m Bubba

We're experiencing some technical difficulties which are causing delays in our adoption process. Thank you in advance for your patience. Please call 07 3426 9999 if you have an urgent enquiry.

Bubba the Saw-Shelled turtle here. While my species is fairly common, meandering as we do along rivers and streams from Cape York Peninsula to NSW, I'm anything but! I'm a cute and placid little turtle and I'm very easy to handle. Being gentle, calm and friendly means that I'd be an ideal pet for beginners. In terms of the home I'll need, I'll require a tank that's at least 4' and, as an aquatic creature - a water source, so I can swim about! That's about all you'll need for now. The rest you can chat to the Reptile Specialist about when you come in to adopt me!

If you think I might be the perfect fit for your family, please fill out an adoption application today! https://www.rspcaqld.org.au/expression-of-interest-to-adopt
