Haltung und Zucht der Tropfenschildkröte, Clemmys guttata, einem amerikanischen Juwel.

Keeping and breeding the spotted turtle, Clemmys guttata, an American work of art.

Kurt Edwards, Collinsville, Oklahoma, USA


Abstract

The spotted turtle is a small, semi-aquatic species from eastern North America. It inhabits clean, shallow water along streams, bogs, cranberry marshes, and other shallow wetlands.
Spotted turtles mature at a size of approximately 5 inches.
This species has been successfully bred by turtle breeders around the world and they have proven to be easy to breed, the eggs easy to incubate, and the hatchlings relatively easy to raise. Several weeks after a successful breeding, the female will lay between 2-5 eggs. The eggs are incubated between 77-89 °F (25-32 °C). Temperatures between 75-80 °F (24-27 °C) will produce all males, 81-84 °F (27-29 °C) will produce a mixture, and 85-89 °F (29-32 °C) will result in females. Eggs can hatch as quickly as 45 days and at lower temperatures it can take as long as 90 days before the hatchling emerges. Housing the babies individually prevents the stronger animals from getting the bulk of the food and allows more even growth throughout the babies. Babies are fed freeze-dried bloodworms and crushed commercial pellet diet daily and the water is changed every three days or as needed.
