I am a passionate terrapins keeper, who after acquiring my first terrapin at the age of 18, have been obsessed with them ever since. I now own 7 terrapins in total and have encountered virtually every problem an owner is ever likely to face. From illness and disease, through to unexpected breeding, I have even had to deal with the grumpiest terrapin you are ever likely to meet!
Throughout all of my trials and tribulations I have read countless books, articles and websites to further my knowledge on terrapin care. As a terrapin keeper for over 10 years I have put this site together to help you become a better terrapin owner and to enjoy and learn from. Quite simply I was sick to death of the lack of quality terrapin information that is available for free. My site is the most comprehensive free terrapin care guide on the Internet – Welcome!
