There are no freshwater Turtles native to New Zealand however there are many varieties kept as pets here. Following is a list of Turtles that I have either kept, or have seen in private collections throughout New Zealand. Click on the names in red to show further information on these species.
Oblong Turtle Macrodiremys oblonga
Broad Shelled Turtle Macrochelodina expansa
Asian Leaf Turtle Cyclemys dentata
Asian Spiny Turtle Heosemys spinosa
Eastern Painted Turtle Chrysemys picta picta
Soft-shelled Turtles Trionyx sp.
There are also a lot of other species of Turtles that were seen here in New Zealand in the Pet Trade back in the 1960's - 70's that are no doubt still alive today in peoples homes. Turtles, if well cared for, can live for 50 years or more!
