Product Description

One of the prettiest of all the sliders, the Belize Slider (Trachemys scripta venusta) ranges from Veracruz Mexico, south through the Yucatan Peninsula, Belize and Honduras. This very colorful slider is very out going and hardy, and will brighten up any tank as a single turtle, as a member of a small group, or as part of a larger community tank.

Belize Sliders do very well on pellets, veggies and some fruits, crickets, super worms and aquatic plants. They love to bask, and do very well in 70 - 80 degree water. The Belize Slider is a good species for keepers just starting out. After several years, they grow fairly large, and make excellent pond turtles in warmer climates.

Please note: The Belize Sliders pictured are several months old. Hatchlings take a few months with proper diet and UVB light to develop their brighter colors

    6 " Belize Slider

    Posted by My new turtle on Apr 30th 2022

    I have a female Belize slider I've raised from a baby in my backyard pond, but last year, she started wandering around the neighborhood looking for some company, so this season I got her a male. The turtle arrived very promptly (overnight shipping.) He was very healthy and happy and took to the pond right away. I look forward to some great little baby turtles.

    The team at Turtle Source are the best. Derrick, Amy and the rest of the crew are very helpful and friendly. I had been looking for a Belize slider for a few months, I wanted a slightly older turtle so that it would be around 4 inches. The Turtle Source had just what I wanted and it arrived the very next day after I ordered it. It arrived in perfect condition and I couldn't be happier. 5 Stars to the Turtle Source Team.
