Reply The Super Jebs says: June 30, 2013 at 1:19 am She looks like she's going to cry lol Reply Yosra Neda says: July 3, 2013 at 9:41 pm 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?

I my self have 2 Slider turtles, sadly from China Town in SouthernCalifornia (they are commonly sold there). I watched your other Slider Turtlevideos, and about there sizes, habitat, and behavior is all true. Over a fewyears 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 TurtleFoundation to take care of them, if they exist. Reply Hobo Aquatics says: March 8, 2014 at 10:51 pm 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… Reply Tina Lin says: March 14, 2014 at 10:01 pm Thanks for the help!

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.

Reply Saphina Collet says: August 9, 2014 at 1:09 am 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? Reply M60Lee says: August 25, 2014 at 12:54 am Pfffffh….Certainly not hard to take care of.

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.

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.
