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.**

    Best place to buy turtles!!

    Posted by Karley horton on May 6th 2022

    This is the second turtle we purchased from the turtle source. The first turtle we purchased was so much fun and interactive, we decided we needed another!! You can definitely tell the turtles are well cared for and interacted with.

    New turtles

    Posted by Oz on Apr 21st 2022

    My son kept asking for turtles and local pet store had only big ones. I am happy to find the turtle source online. We needed new hatched one. They have all size options. First, we got only one but he thought she is lonely so we ordered one more. Both times we received the turtle in one day and they were healthy. I am recommending the website to my close friends and I wanted to write here too. Thanks

    Red eared sliders

    Posted by Stephanie Clark on Mar 31st 2022

    Cutest freaking things I've ever seen...... So cool n love being handled after just a few hours, despite what we can only assume was a rough ride from Florida (UPS man handled "live animal" package roughly and handed them to my husband upside down

    Perfect purchase!

    Posted by April Hood on Mar 23rd 2022

    Turtle was exactly as described only way way cuter then I could ever imagine! He was overnighted and well packaged. Couldn’t be more happy with my purchase and will 1000000% be a return buyer! He is full of life and a great addition to our family. They even included some food with him. If I had one “suggestion” it would have been super helpful to have a FIQ on proper care and maintenance or something with a little insight As this is our first ever turtle. But let’s be honest that’s what google is for! 10 out of 10 would recommend the Turtle source for anyone in the market

    2 baby red eared sliders

    Posted by Bradyn Smith on Mar 17th 2022

    I got 2 very cute well started hatchlings and they’re honestly doing really great and they are loving their tank they are in. They’ve been basking really well and eating really well. I would say that it was well worth the purchase.
