Hey all. I just went to day 1 of the Easter Expo here in Jacksonville. There were a lot of turtles there. Many, many exotics (which I'm not that into) were represented. As far as the native stuff goes I saw many hatchlings: red ears, yellow belly, red belly, fl cooters, miss. maps, albino red ears, common maps, southern painted, pastel red ears and spotted among others. The sub-adult and adults there: common snappers (4-6"), spotted, chicken (4-5", only two in the entire event) and others. I saw the largest mata mata (spelling?) I've ever seen or heard about (16+ inches?).

Its amazing how the prices can differ one the same species from one table to the next. About 8 vendors were offering red ear hatchlings. The prices ranged from $2.50 each to $8.00 for the same turtles! I got a nice, very healthy RES for $2.50. He has a nice red stripe down the center of the TOP of his head. There weren't many vendors selling yellow bellys but this one company had about 20 of them and they were all extremely different from one another. I got one for $8. At least 3-4 vendors had FL/ Penn. Cooter hatchlings. I got a nice spunky one for the best price available-$6. A few more vendors had common maps/ flase maps. I picked up a nice hatchling for the best price I saw $7. Southern painted turtles were popular there. I think it was the only type of painted turtle represented in hatchling form at the show. Again, I was found a nice one for the best price there $6.
