Facts about Flana

  • Species: Turtle - Other
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Large
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 77908

Flana is a midland painted semi-aquatic turtle around 15 yrs old. She is friendly and easy to handle.

Midland Painteds are great beginner turtles as they are hardy turtles and very tame around keepers; which, makes them enjoyable since they aren't constantly running and hiding. They will swim to you for food. One of the prettiest of painted turtles. Their carapace (top shell) has distinct patterns around the edge with red coloration. It has large alternating carapace scutes. The carapace is smooth and lightly domed. Their plastron (bottom shell) is a yellow/orange. The head and throat have prominent yellow lines running from the tip of the nose and mouth downwards across the face. Females do get a bit large, up to 8" and can live 25+ years. Good rule of thumb for an aquarium set-up, there should be 6 inches of floor per every 1 inch of turtle. Minimum is a 40 gal tank up to 120 gal tank if more than one turtle. Adult Midland Painteds are omnivores. In captivity, they do well on commercially prepared aquatic turtle food, freeze dried shrimp & crickets, meal & wax worms, aquatic plants, veggies (such as zucchini and dark leafy greens) and some fruits.

About Fur Angels Animal Sanctuary

About Our Rescue Group...

I got involved with rescue work out of love for animals. I had decided to set up my own rescue. I serve mostly deaf animals because they are first to be put down and are usually deemed untrainable, unadoptable and unlovable. I didn't feel this was right or fair.

Our Adoption Process...

We are a small rescue who cares for all our pets in
foster homes. We do NOT have a facility & all animals
are seen by appointment only, after an application has
been approved.
Dogs' adoption fee includes vetting, spaying/neutering, and any health care they may need. For some dogs, the fee may be reduced for reasons that can be made available. Cats' adoption fee include vetting, spaying/neutering, and any health care. All are heartworm negative. We require all possible adopters to fill out an adoption application, and to submit themselves to home visits by staff or volunteers, or by local rescues. Vet reference will be required and will be used. Upon adopting, an adoption contract will be signed. Call me or email to start this process.
