Terrapins require space, time and commitment

Terrapins are still constantly brought on a whim, just as with ANY living being they WILL grow as they age so the baby fifty pence piece size animals will NOT remain that size and will NEED more and more space. Terrapins are truly a life-time commitment and can live up to forty plus years so at a time when the majority of people seem to struggle with committing to an animal for even a few months and when many parents buy them for their children this is something to be considered VERY carefully! They are quite expensive and difficult animals to keep.
