Dwarf turtles that you can get are Dwarf Musk Turtles, they only grow up to 7 inches and are native to canada and tend to live in river environments :) nicknamed Skinkpot because of the odour they release when threatened!

There is no such thing as a dwarf turtle. If you want a turtle I would suggest a terrapin or a red eared slider. The sliders are more popular but the terrapins are easier to feed. Just feed them worms and fruit.

Most turtles sold as "dwarfs" are actually baby turtles, usually red-eared sliders. These turtles can grow to be 12 or more inches long. Dwarf turtles do not exist.
