"I've acquired a male chelus fimbriatus about 2 years ago & it's growing well ( approx. 8" carapace now ). I have no problems keeping him as he's quite a hardy turtle. He eats lots of small fish ( up to 4" ) and it never fails to amaze me everytime he eats with their signature "suction" killer style! I hope to get a female and try breeding in the near future. To everyone out there keeping matamatas, please do share success stories on captive breeding. TQ!"
