Species: Rio Grande Red-eared Slider Turtle (Trachemys scripta elegans)
Age: Adult, approximately 8 years old
Size: Small (under 6 inches)
Minimum aquarium size: 55 gallons
I’m a healthy Rio Grande red-eared slider turtle and approximately 8 years old, and I am available for adoption. My kind are from the Rio Grande area of Texas and I am more colorfully marked than common red-eared sliders. I’m not fond of greens but I eat turtle food well. I really enjoy my shrimp treats!
I’ll need a 55-gallon or larger aquarium, with a strong filter, heat and UVB lighting, and a basking spot. Debbie at Dancing Turtle can assist you with setup options.
