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.

    When the turtles arrived it was like opening the best Christmas present ever. The girls were well packed and even came with a heat pack as they had been shipped to a colder climate. I loved their size (yearlings) and were bigger than I expected. They were healthy and active and seem to be enjoying their new “digs.” They have joined a hatchling red ear slider and they brought some life to his lonely existence. They share a tank with a waterfall, heat lamp and basking area. The pattern on their shells is gorgeous. I would definitely order again from your company but expect that I probably won’t need to if they live as long as their life expectancy. Thank you for sending me these beauties. I am so happy!
