You might want to buy from a breeder.

I live in Cali and I bought my turts from Florida.

Please try to adopt one

There are so many sweet, homeless turtles out there, please give them a chance...

If you are worried about shipping a turtle (which I would be myself), look into local breeders or smaller pet stores that can order one for you. As for "baby", I doubt you'll find many of those since it's illegal to sell turtles under 4". But a 4" turtle is so much better than a baby, babies are often sick and die easily. 4" turtles are about a year old and are much more resistant.

There are also three reptile shows coming up here soon. Manchester, NH; Melville, NY; White Plains, NY. Those shouldn't be too far from you.
