Saturday, May 18, 2019 (Open to Public) - The Mid-Atlantic Turtle and Tortoise Society is very pleased to have former MATTS VP Keith Kelley present "Keeping Water & Box Turtles in Florida." Keith was smitten with turtles after seeing his first box turtle at age 6 in a Maryland woods. When his family moved to Florida, he discovered water turtles and has never looked back. He started out with sliders, Painted Turtles, and snappers,and "graduated" to Diamondback Terrapins, North American Wood and Spotted Turtles, and more in his Maryland collection. He also later gathered a collection of Asian species such as Chinese box turtles, spengleri, and trifaciatas. Keith moved to Fla. 4 years ago only bringing his Spotted Turtles, but now he once again has Chinese box turtles, and North American Wood turtles. Keith will talk on his setups and collection and share stories of his wildlife excursions via kayak.
