Albino Red Eared Sliders are one of the most striking of all turtles to keep. One in a million, their survival in the wild is almost impossible. Luckily a few breeders, produce them for keepers to appreciate and enjoy. Albino Red Eared Sliders are one of the few turtles that actually are hatched for gender by temperature. Ours are past the difficult early stages and well started. Albinos Red Ears 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 normal colored 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.

Turtle came healthy and active and as advertised very well established. Description needs revision, albinos have poor vision almost blind and have a very difficult time eating because they cannot see the food. Also they are extremely sensitive to low ph bellow 6.5, had to set up a new higher ph habitat because the low ph caused slight bleeding at the scute seams. Low ph is just to acidic for baby albinos to tolerate. Two days in higher ph and symptoms are gone thank god.
Been wanting one for a while now didn’t know who to trust but I took a chance from here and he arrived alive and healthy when I put him in the tank he already made friends with my pink belly side nick
I was pretty excited to receive this little gal. Package was undamaged when I received it. The little turtle was in great shape. Honestly I think it had been napping a bit. I took it out of the packaging and the container took a couple of pictures. Took a little video. And then introduced it to its new home. 55 gallons of growing room. It's been a couple of weeks since my purchase. I witness her feeding regularly. Great little purchase. Couldn't be happier with it.
My hatchling arrived in perfect condition. He is adjusting well and eating.
Beautiful baby turtle , looks just like the one in the photo. Received in excellent condition and packaging. Within 24 hours it was well adapted to the other turtles that I have.
Highly recommend the seller and everything is excellent.
The turtle came in great condition and healthy. I personally don’t think they was well started I expected them to eat turtle pellets, they are not eating turtle pellets. I consider well started to be eating pellets maybe that’s just me. They are eating other things just not the pellets. They are doing great and I will purchase from again.
My baby was happy and super active the sec I put him on his basking dock. The next day he was swimming up to me as i walk up to his tanks it’s amazing. The turtle source never let me down i will always and only get my turtles from Marcus definitely the best in the business. I will be back for a 3rd time for sure.
