In most states are protected. Also, are uncommon in nature. Most habitat is not suitable to them. Also, remove a few, and can decimate a wild population. Also, without doubt, is one of the best of all turtles, and they only lay (max 5 eggs per year) from all my experience. Low reproduction also raises their value.
:why are spotted turtles so expensive? they are not endangered, such as the bog turtle, so i was wondering if anyone can shed light on this. I regularly see spotteds along with painteds in the spring while kayaking--i even managed to catch a spotted with my bare hands(and released --of course--i have a soft heart for any surviving wild-turtle--they are there in the wild--so they ARE survivers and belong to stay there). I would love to buy a c.b. spotted, but $200 is so steep!
