Diamondback Terrapin
Physical Description
The Diamondback Terrapin are reptiles, they're cold-blooded animals, they lay eggs and also have 4 legs. These types of species are vertebrates.
A male diamondback in length can reach 14cm and a female diamondback can reach up to 28cm in length. The reason they named the turtle a diamondback is because their back is covered with diamond patterns. Their skin colour is usually a grey-black colour. The males can weigh up to 200g and the females can weigh up to 600g.
The Diamondback live in water (salt, tidal creeks). Located on the Atlantic coast of the United States from Cape Cod to the Florida Keys.
The Yellow border is where abouts you can see Diamondback terrapins
Diamondbacks eat a lot of worms, clams, snails, fish, crabs and water plants. These species are carnivores. Also female Diamondbacks have plates in there jaws to eat their prey better.
Mating Season: May through July.
Pregnancy: Around 60 days.
Clutch size: 8-12 eggs.
The eggs are cracked in the months August or October. After hatching. The difference between getting a female diamond back or a male is that you normally get males if the weather is colder but to get a female it needs to be hotter weather. The eggs get burried under the sand until they are hatched. Once the eggs are hatched they're on their own. After hatching, some of the eggs stay in the nest during the winter season. Their life span is 25-40 years
