#21 European Pond Turtle
The European Pond Turtle is one of the very few species of freshwater turtles that dwell throughout Europe. These turtles are incredibly unique, and people often seek them to keep as pets.
There are regional subspecies across the continent, but one factor remains common- European Pond Turtles have long lives reaching up to 120 years.
They come in a range of markings, colors, and size, making them a popular pet. Imagine having a pet that ends up living long after you!
They’re primarily aquatic turtles, quite unlike the Eastern Box Turtles we just discussed.
