Product Description

Dorbigni Slidders are a remarkable species native to the tropical rainforests of Brazil, Uraguay and Argentina. This stunning turtle features a striking combination of green and yellow/orange coloration on its shell and skin, with distinctive black markings on its face, legs, and tail.

Physically, Dorbigni Slidders are one of the smallest of the sliders, typically only growing to around 8 inches. Their shell is smooth and noticeably domed, with bright colorations that vary between individuals.

Dorbigni Slidders are known for their outgoing and social nature. They are often seen basking on rocks or logs, and can be quite active and playful in their aquatic environment. They are also known to be very curious and inquisitive, often investigating new objects or people in their surroundings.

The Turtle Source is one of only a handful of US breeders working with this pretty turtle species. Their needs are simple: moderate air and water temperatures, an easily accessed basking area, moderate to deep water with artificial or live plants, and a typical omnivore, slider diet. Ours do well with pellets, most greens & an occasional piece of fish, beef heart or earth worm. They are a very easy to keep once properly set up.

Overall, Dorbigni Slidders, available at The Turtle Source, are an exceptional example of the beauty and wonder of the natural world. With its stunning appearance, captivating personality, and origins in the lush rain-forests of South America, this turtle is a true marvel of the animal kingdom.
