CUMBERLAND TURTLE

TRACHEMYS SCRIPTA TROOSTII

The Cumberland Turtle is a subspecies of the Trachemys scripta. There are three sub-species that make up the T.scripta family, T.s.scripta, (Yellow bellied Slider) T.s.elegans,(Red-eared Slider) and T.s.troostii (Cumberland Slider).

Cumberland Turtles are identified by the yellow ear striping rather than the red found on Red-eared Turtles.

Cumberland Turtles don't grow as large as the Red-eared Turtles, with female Cumberland Turtles obtaining around 20 - 22cm long in the shell, and males 15 - 17cm.

Like the male Red-eared Turtle, the male Cumberland Turtles have extremely long claws on their front feet and a very large tail in relation to the females.

The Cumberland Turtle is easy to keep and can be hand fed.

Cumberland Turtles are hard to find in New Zealand, but there are a few in private collections.
