Your place for great pictures of turtles and
some pictures of toads, frogs, snakes, and salamanders.

Our mission is to share with you very good pictures of turtles
and a few pictures of amphibians and other reptiles found in North America.

We provide many pictures of each animal and many animals of the same species.
We try to capture their personalities and to show young ones growing over time.
For identification purposes, we try to show each animal's plastron or belly.

Our mission has grown to include the sharing of techniques we use to care
for our pet turtles, some unusual how to projects, and other first hand information.
This is accomplished by a series of articles containing many pictures we call tours
located on the Raising Baby Turtles page.

We love hearing from you and we will try to help you by answering your questions
about turtles. So if you have a question, a problem, or a comment, send us an e-mail.

We appreciate that some turtle owners need to find new homes for their pet turtles.
So if you have a turtle or tortoise that needs a new home, list it here.
