Hi, I’m Dave

Hey there my name is Dave! I'm a fabulous Murray River Turtle in search of my new family!

You might've noticed my shell doesn't look like a 'normal' turtles - but hey, who likes normal anyway?! It doesn't affect how I get around and I swim around perfectly well.

Like other reptiles, I do need a heat source. An in-tank heater is the best option for me as well as lots of places to swim and hide under if I need a break. I'll need a floating/fixed dock to swim up onto and soak under my UV light!

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


Adoption price: $50
Emydura macquarii
