Product Description

Countless requests for juvenile Red Eared Sliders have inspired us to make this species available in the highest quality possible. We hatch & hand raise Red Ears to pond size for our customers all the time - now we're making juveniles and yearlings available at a most affordable price - remember, the shipping charge is the same for 1 to 6 of all our small sized turtles. (Mix and match as you like)

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 U.S 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 quicken other species taming down. Red Ears are omnivorous, eating pellets, most greens, insects, fish, mollusks etc.

**Please Note: Red Eared Sliders are not allowed to be shipped to Virginia, Oregon or Florida. Rarer color morphs of Red Eared Sliders, such as Albino Red Ears, Pastel Red Ears, Hypo Red Ears, Hypo Translucent and Ghost Red Ears are permitted to be shipped to Florida. Please contact us if you have any questions - Thank you.**

    My turtles are great!!!

    Posted by Titus the turtle man on Jun 5th 2024

    I got my turtles about a year ago, when I first got them one was very shy and one was very happy and energetic. I love the packaging, When I opened the box they where in a plastic container that had holes in it, and there was styrofoam on top and on bottom, and there was hole in the side of the box. It also came with a pen and some food! And now my turtles are big and strong. I recommend The Turtle Source for any turtle.

    Baby hatching red ear sliders

    Posted by Josiah Espinoza on May 31st 2024

    Absolutely adore them already ! They are so cute and tiny. They both got delivered to us safely and very active. I had accidentally put for them to get delivered on a Friday but customer service was very nice when I called to get them sooner right away had it done and was able to get them earlier. Thank you very much for having great customer service and delivering healthy turtles.
