  3. Sahra Smith says:

    Mines too small to eat fish, so I've been feeding him reptile sticks. It's that ok for him to eat?

  4. The Super Jebs says:

    She looks like she's going to cry lol

  5. Yosra Neda says:

    oh, that's something that you would call ''soft shell'', which probably means that it isn't basking under it's uvb(<– ubv?) lamp and is lacking the vitamin d3 it will be needing, and YES this can be fatal to your own red eared slider so watch out. Do you have a platform it could bask on? Or are you using one of those floating logs?

  7. spera says:

    This is the best info you can get about red sliders BEFORE you buy. I got one large myself but not as huge as this one showed in the video.

  9. Vincent Jack says:

    the female RES is cute due to shorter claws and tail and more bulky

  10. Vincent Jack says:

  21. Nasheem whye says:

    People if you have a slider thats 10 years are more and worried about their lifespan you have nothing to fear sliders can live for fiftey to 60 years when properly taken care of.

  22. Ji Hyeok Jeong says:

  23. Thomas Bynum says:

    Is it legal to buy one in North Carolina

  24. Jason Peterson says:

    True there. I my self have 2 Slider turtles, sadly from China Town in Southern
    California (they are commonly sold there). I watched your other Slider Turtle
    videos, and about there sizes, habitat, and behavior is all true. Over a few
    years they do get hard & messy to take care of. Even mine are right now.
    I had mine for around 10 years, a hassle to clean their (sadly a glass fish tank,
    its roomy though, so no worries there) but I still love them and comfort them.
    Don't plan of tossing them in the wild, but may have to give them to a Turtle
    Foundation to take care of them, if they exist.

  25. Hobo Aquatics says:

    I'm a current slider owner and I purchased it as a baby from a "china town" area as a baby the size of a quarter.  It is now roughly 5 to 6 inches long and doing quite well.  Only issue is, she only has her right eye.  eating fish is a rare event for her.  sigh…

  26. Tina Lin says:

    Thanks for the help! Im learning about how to take care of them so they wont die(mine died  because I didnt know how to take care of them).

  27. Mark Jackson says:

    I have one of tho's

  28. BlueKazuki says:

    The worst part of owning a slider turtle is the online "experts". Even this woman who was supposed to answer the question "What's a Red-Eared Slider?" just kept talking about "don't do this, don't do that, never do this" and made having a turtle feel like its the worst pet ever.  She could've at least smiled.

  29. Anette Svea Åsgård says:

    She sounds like she's going to cry, but she's holding back. lol

  30. JuliAnne Flora says:

    i am thinking about getting a slider and this is very helpful i am trying to get as many facts as i can

  31. Darci Stewart says:

    This girl is so annoying.. She swallows all the time lol. And she always sounds like she's about to cry.

  32. Saphina Collet says:

    My turtles are still young but starting to believe that one is male and the other is female. I was just wondering how many eggs they lay if they do mate and how many times they will actually mate?

  33. M60Lee says:

    Pfffffh….Certainly not hard to take care of.

  34. Alexis 1006 says:

  35. Mario Alvarez says:

  36. Jake Xiang says:

    This kind of turtle really can eat when it gets much bigger…And when you feed it,it might bite your fingers.A bit painful,I have to say.

  37. Breebee23 says:

  38. Lorna Temperatura says:

  39. Tommy L. says:

    I rescued a red ear slider male from being run over by cars here in Florida i didn't buy from no one but i hope i'm able to keep him i got turtle food and a good area for him to swim and bask. will i get to prison for rescuing and keeping a red ear slider as i know how to take good care of him? because i had res turtles here in Florida as a pet before the state made a big deal and everytime i handle the turtle i wash my hands with soap and water and clean the blanket he walks on.

  45. Dreamcast Fanatic says:

    Is their any breed that just grown up to 4 inches. About 10 years ago I was given one, it was a baby I assume illegal , uncle got it from china town and it was so small.  A couple of months it got sick, stopped eating but it slowly got better.  So 10 years later and its 4 maybe 5 and a half inches from nose to tail.  Other than the size it seems happy, healthy and active. I always wondered if there was a breed of small red eared sliders or if its lack of growth was due to it getting sick when it was young.

  46. CharmOrSpear says:

    Who else had the urge to name them leo, don, mikey and raph? :3

  47. Zhong Zhang says:

  50. J. Forgione says:

    You can get Salmonella from adult turtles as well. The Key is to keep your turtles in a clean environment, wash your hands after handling them AND teach your little kids not to put their pets in their mouths.

    🤔 Does the shell color of the RES turtle determine their age? Like if their shell color is black, does that means they are an adult turtle?
