Product Description

Found only in Mexico and Honduras, Mexican Ornate Sliders are a very pretty slider, with deeper colors, red circles and black spots. They thrive in mostly water setups and love to bask.

True omnivores, they readily take pellets and most anything else offered. Adults do well in larger tanks, and they make very pretty additions to outdoor ponds in warmer months, or in warmer climates.

    Customer service was great, Turtles look great when I got them. But over priced, I found the same turtles elsewhere for less than half price.

    Mexican Ornate Slider

    This turtle was a beautiful bred but I had a few concerns when it arrived. It came in the plastic container looking as though it wasn't taken care of with poop and one small napkin to absorb anything from the turtles travel. It did stink very badly and the turtle looked to be at least 4-6 months old and not the hatchling I ordered. I think the website should clarify more of what a "well started hatchling" is because this was alot older and bigger than I had expected. I didn't receive and cool stickers or documents in my box with the turtle. Just the container the turtle was in and some paper wrapped around it. Overall the turtle is beautiful. But I would liked to have seen a bit more from the company with documents and stickers to say thank you for shopping with us. I gave 4 stars because of the advertising and lack of appreciation for shopping with them.

    I ordered a hatchling turtle and got a bigger turtle than I was expecting (2.5 inch shell). He's a nice looking turtle, but not what I ordered. Maybe they were out of hatchlings...I never was told they were.

    Shipped quickly and packaged securely! I purchased a hatchling and it is just as pictured and described! So adorable! Would definitely recommend to anyone wishing to add a turtle/tortoise to their family!
