I ordered European ponds and got these caspians. My male is about 4 inches, the females around 6 inches. They are friendly, active, curious, and alert from the get-go. Mine were reported to be of Lebanase locality. Most imported recently are reportedly so.
I haven't found much info on these brats. I'd like to breed them as I have a 4.3 colony going. Right now I'm treating them like my euros, but my Euros are russians, so these can't be treated exactly the same (say hibernation wise).
:several have just come n to my charge....not by choice but not all that unwillingly as i think they are pretty cool turtles :
