Agree with the above post. They are relatively inexpensive, but don't show up on lists that often any more. I would guess $30-$50 in today's market. As mentioned above, they are among the least hardy reptiles imported and 90% will be dead in a few months (personal experience) That being said, I may have the longest surviving specimen in the U.S., now going on about 16 years. I was able to adapt it to Reptomin and Trout Chow early on and, even though it's plastron is riddled with old shell-rot damage, it survives. PS: This turtle frequently turns up on the "albino" ist for some reason.
