Stop by Petco and check out the live turtles and tortoises for sale for a shell backed sidekick sure to make you smile. While seemingly identical, you’ll find there are some distinct differences between turtles and tortoises. Turtles, like the red-eared slider, enjoy a more aquatic environment and their home needs to reflect their natural habitat. This means having at least a 40 gallon tank filled partially with water for them to swim, as well as a dry area for your turtle to rest and warm up. Although fascinating to watch and inquisitive in nature, most don’t enjoy being handled. Your local Petco will have their live turtles for sale in a habitat that is conducive to helping them thrive.

If you still want a carapace chum, but don’t want a pet who’s always wet, than check out Petco’s live tortoises for sale. These land lovers only require enough water to drink and for a shallow soak. Their habitat should also have edible substrate deep enough for a little burrowing. Unlike, their aquatic cousins, tortoises can become tame with gentle handling and time. A tortoise can live for decades, so make certain you are up for caring for this long-lived pet. And like all reptiles, both need access to heating elements or basking areas to keep them at a healthy temperature.

Tour Petco’s selection of live turtles and tortoises for sale and peruse their accessories to help give your loggerhead a healthy and happy habitat.
