Smallest turtle ever The smallest turtle ever was hatched at Pacific northwest turtle work. this mini musked turtle is about grams, its mother is about 3 inches and father measuring 2 inches so small that it can be easily fitted in a bottle cap.
Although this turtle looks like he's smiling and happy about the toothbrush cleaning. We have had our turtle for over 8 years and he hates the toothbrush! That turtle is trying to bite that guys finger.
