No, the Brazilian turtle is a water turtle. If it is cultured at home, it needs water. But they are not deep-water turtles and cannot be cultured in deep water. It is more appropriate to breed Brazilian turtles in shallow water. In the early stage of breeding, the water level can be controlled not to be higher than 5cm, and then the water level can be adjusted according to the height of Brazilian turtle shell. When living in deep water, they will have great physical exertion when breathing, which is harmful to their health in the long run. 1、 Is the Brazilian turtle a deep-water turtle? The Brazilian turtle is a kind of water turtle. It needs water for breeding. They need to live in the water and forage in the water. However, they are not a deep-water turtle, that is, they are not suitable for living in deep water. It is more appropriate for them to live in shallow water. At different growth stages of Brazilian turtles, due to their different shapes, the water level is also different, which can be flexibly adjusted according to their shapes. They must not be allowed to live in deep water.
If they are allowed to be in a place where the water depth is more than twice the height of their turtle shell, they need to consume a lot of physical strength to float to the water surface when breathing. If they go on like this for a long time, it will be harmful to their health and may even lead to drowning or choking. In addition to controlling the water level, some stones can also be placed in the container where they are raised, so that they can sometimes climb up to rest. If Brazilian turtles accidentally choke on water, rescue them in time, let the glans down, and then press their limbs to let the water flow out. 2、 How deep water is suitable for Brazilian turtles? As mentioned above, Brazilian turtles are not deep-water turtles and cannot live in deep water, otherwise it will have a very adverse impact on their health. Specifically, when the Brazilian turtle is in the early growth stage, that is, the young turtle stage, the water level should not exceed 5cm. After they grow up, they can adjust the water level according to the height of their tortoise shell. The water level is almost the same as the height of their tortoise shell. No matter how high it is, it can not be twice the height of their tortoise shell. （BaXiGuiShiShenShuiGuiMa，YongDuoShenDeShuiYangGeKuo）
