Heterozygous: Normal looking turtles that carry the gene for albinism.
Double Hets: The parents were different tyes of albino, they carry 2 different sets of genes for albinism. This increases the chance of successfully hatchling an albino turtle from 25%, up to 66%. They will be compatible with the two most common forms of albinism, again greatly increasing your chances of hatching your own albino turtles.
Countless requests for juvenile Red Eared Sliders have inspired us to make this species available in the highest quality possible. We hatch & hand raise Red Ears to pond size for our customers all the time - now we're making juveniles and yearlings available at a most affordable price - remember, the shipping charge is the same for 1 to 6 of all our small sized turtles. (mix and match as you like : )
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 quicken other species taming down. Red ears are omnivorous, eating pellets, most greens, insects, fish, mollusks etc.
**Please Note: Red Eared Sliders are not allowed to be shipped to Virginia, Oregon or Florida. Rarer color morphs of Red Eared Sliders, such as Albino Red Ears, Pastel Red Ears, Hypo Red Ears, Hypo Translucent and Ghost Red Ears are permitted to be shipped to Florida. Please contact us if you have any questions - Thank you.
Happy with this little girl. Her colors are pretty for sure. Arrived quickly and healthy.
This is my first time buying live animals online, i did a lot of back and forth thinking if I'm gonna buy or not, I look around the reptiles store near me and could not find red eared sliders, we have one baby red eared slider that was given to me and my husband and we want to have at least 3 more so he could have buddies! After reseaching and reading reviews I decided a go and bought three, all red eared sliders but different kinds, albino, rio grande and male heterozygous because i thought maybe in the future he can have albinos babies! :) Communication is GREAT from the beginning to untill the turtles are delivered! They made sure my turtles will be safe because the weather is hot! But they made it alive and strong! it was overnight shipping from Florida to Sacramento,CA. They communicate through the whole process from buying to shipping updates. It was a great experience as a first time buying live animals online. Very satisfied buyer here and will recommend to families and friends! Btw i only bought 3 and got 4 and free food! Thank you!
I got 6 tiny turtles all were active as soon as I put them in there home they bask off and on throughout the day and are good eaters.
