Species: Red-eared Slider Turtle (Trachemys scripta elegans)
Age: Adult, age unknown
Size: Small (under 6 inches)
Minimum aquarium size: 55 gallons
I’m a healthy older red-eared slider turtle and I am available for adoption. I was found in an abandoned house with my friend Alice after being left alone for a long time. Because of the poor conditions I was living in, my shell still needs some TLC so I can be really handsome. I act goofy to make people smile and would love someone’s undivided attention.
I eat a very healthy diet of greens and turtle food with occasional shrimp and mealworm 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.
