Species: Red-eared Slider Turtle (Trachemys scripta elegans)
Age: Adult, approximately 9 years old
Size: Small (under 6 inches)
Minimum aquarium size: 55 gallons
I’m a healthy red-eared slider turtle and approximately 9 years old, and I am available for adoption. I am sweet, laid back, and very people friendly turtle looking for a home where I will sometimes succeed in begging for turtle treats. I eat greens and turtle food well.
Since I always want to be at the top of the basking pile which can create conflict with tankmates, I’ll need a 55-gallon or larger aquarium all to myself. I will need a strong filter, heat and UVB lighting, and a basking spot. Debbie at Dancing Turtle can assist you with setup options.
