Turtles Territory

Welcome to Turtles Territory!

Before we begin: yes, tortoises and terrapins are here too! Sure, we could have called it Tortoise Territory or Terrapins Territory, but we rolled the dice and it came up Turtles Territory. On this page turtle fans will find answers to all of their questions about pet care, turtle facts, "what to do if...", and just about any thing that applies to turtles or terrapins or tortoises. If you like this page then you'll love the new book by Stacey Venzel called Today's Dinosaurs: A Complete Guide to Turtles, Terrapins, and Tortoises (Sherpa Multimedia, 2017).

Today's Dinosaurs is the first animal guide from The Super Fins and is packed with hundreds of images and is created in an easy-to-use question-and-answer format that anyone can use. Have a turtle question? It'll be answered in Today's Dinosaurs.

Check out videos at the bottom of this page, too! (And on our YouTube page.)
