TURTLE SKELETON - TRACHEMYS SCRIPTA

THE SCIENCE

The pond slider, Trachemys scripta, is a common, medium-sized species of semi-aquatic turtle native to the United States and Mexico. It has become a relatively widespread species, now found throughout much of Europe and Asia as well. The most recognizable subspecies is T. s. elegans, the red-eared slider, popular within the global pet trade. T. scripta is omnivorous, and feeds on a wide variety of plant and animal matter. Upon maturity, males may reach up to 9.5 inches in carapace length (measured in a straight line from the anterior-most tip of the shell to the posterior-most), while females may hit up to 11.4 inches. Lifespans average around 30 years within this species.

THE STORY

This genuine T. scripta skeleton, complete with both the carapace (dorsal half of the shell) and the plastron (ventral half), is finely articulated and mounted onto a polished compressed-wood base. A clear dome on top completes the casing; this specimen makes for a lovely display.
