The Chinese box turtle species is the “crown jewel” of all box turtles and is most sought after by box turtle enthusiasts across the world. The “box turtle” gets its name from the ability to close its shell on both ends. They make great pet turtles and seem to be able to learn their owner’s voice and become quite personable depending on the amount of time spent with them.
Most noteworthy, these inquisitive little chelonians also called “snake eating turtles”, Yellow Margined box turtles, and Golden-headed box turtles. Because the turtles are native to the sub-tropical and temperate climates of China , Taiwan , and Japan and have a unique hinge on their plastron that allows box turtles to withdraw their arms, legs, and head fully into their shells and seal up like a box. Interestingly, these animals can stay in this position for hours. Lastly, for size, these turtles reach a shell size of 5-12 inches long.

The larger the enclosure the better! Babies as well as juveniles can be kept in glass 20-gallon aquariums but will outgrow them and will spend a significant amount of time trying to “walk through” the glass. When using aquariums for adults, they must be large not only to offer the appropriate space needed for daily exercise and enrichment via foraging behaviors but also to allow for better air circulation. Also, using a 40-gallon aquarium or larger is suitable for adults. Because building custom enclosures is a viable option and have become quite popular. Lastly, build to 4 feet wide by 4 feet long and 12 inch high enclosures are used to house two (female and female or male and female) box turtles comfortably.
In closing, since these animals are semi-aquatic, 25-50% of the cage should be a shallow water area. At the very least, a large container for swimming that the box turtle can easily enter and exit for swimming is required.
We do highly recommend the 6-month-old well started baby Chinese box turtles for sale and 1-year-olds over the more fragile hatchlings they are available here.
