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.
