Hi, I’m Torah

Hi my name is Torah and I am a very cute, friendly Brisbane river short necked turtle looking for a forever home.

I would make an ideal pet for beginners interested in watching me grow. I am a very good little eater enjoying cut up fresh fish, prawns, pellets and freshwater snails. I also like to nibble on freshwater plants.

I'm currently living in a large indoor tank, however will eventually require a large outdoor tub in a safely enclosed area.

If you think I might be the perfect fit for your family, please fill out an adoption application today with pictures of my new set up.


Adoption Price: $50
Emydura macquarii
