Tommy's shell is about six inches. Tara's shell is over ten inches. They are really great pets.

I saw these for sale in a local fish store, and it had a disclaimer about being sold for educational purposes only or something to that affect, along with a wash hands thoroughly after handling sign. Wonder if California bans them except for educational purposes and the fish store just uses a loophole to be able to legally sell them. The ones i saw were small, no more than 2" shells. How big do they get? Can 1 be kept in a 10G?

They get about a foot long. In NY the shell has to be 4 inches in order to be sold. They need large tanks. Mine are both in 75 gallon tanks.

Do they bite? How are they as pets, as in personality and the sort
