Ghost Red Eared Sliders: (Trachemys scripta elegans)
Experience Level: Intermediate [?]
Ghost Red Eared Sliders are a rare color phase of the normal Red Eared Slider that is lacking most of the normal pigments in the skin and on the shell. About a dozen of these pretty turtles turn up each year - literally out of several million. They behave the same as normal Red Eared Sliders, and they otherwise have the same husbandry requirements which follow:
The most common turtle available the world over, Red Eared Sliders make excellent starter turtles, and adults will brighten up outdoor ponds in nearly all US temperature zones. They do well in tanks, water and land setups, and when kept with most other species.
They bask frequently, and will even pile on top of each other for the best sunning position. In community set ups, it's often the red ears example that quickens other species taming down. Red ears are omnivorous, eating pellets, most greens, insects, fish, mollusks etc.
*Please note that Virginia and Florida do not allow Red Eared Sliders to be possessed by the public - so we are not able to ship Red Eared Sliders to those states. Florida does have a special exception for the different color morphs including: Ghost Red Ears, Albino Red Ears and Hypo/Pastel Red Ears; all of which can be shipped to Florida destinations.

* Remember, each turtle order comes with a free starter sample of the same Turtle diet your Turtle has been raised on - this will last one small turtle a few weeks - to order larger quantities, see the lower left side of this page. *
