Not only are they becoming very rare, they are in fact protected at least to some degree in some of their range. They are also very good looking turtles and stay small and are mild mannered usually accepting pellets and other prepared foods. Your very lucky to be able to see them in the wild. If you keep checking the classifieds CB hatchlings usually pop up as low as 85, have seen them as low as 60 once, but thats very rare. There are some now going for 100 each I believe. That is a relatively fair price.

: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!
