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.**

    Great little red eared slider

    Posted by Emmanuel DeLeon on May 12th 2023

    The well started hatchling red eared slider I received is very shy for now cause it hasn't figured out yet the I'm it's new feeder yet; but I know with whole lot of patience & time spent it will be just as happy to see me just like my two baby river cooters.

    Happy, beautiful turtles

    Posted by Rev Mom on May 10th 2023

    I have ordered eight of these red eared sliders in all, including two juveniles. We are keeping them in our lake and have a turtle log for them to hang out on-- and they zoomed off into the deep as soon as we set them on that log, and then were basking later that day. The first batch arrived less than16 hours after I ordered them, too! Healthy, lively animals that will contribute to making our lake an even healthier ecosystem.

    Red ear slider

    Posted by Jessie on Mar 9th 2023

    Arrived yesterday, took a while to come out of his shell and is skittish in the terrarium when he sees me, which is normal behavior. He ate a few hours after arriving and is doing really well. Very cool, beautiful coloring, and he has the right environment to both hide a little bit and bask. My son is super happy with his new turtles!

    The team at the turtle Sauris were professional, and seem to really care about their customers. In spite of 8 inches of snow, they got the turtles here alive and well.

    Red Eared Slider Hatchling

    Posted by April on Jan 11th 2023

    Our new baby slider is perfect. She is healthy and is a beautiful color. She was shipped very well with a heat pack and they even included a bag of food. We look forward to having her for a long time. Thank you!

    First turtle ever

    Posted by Trevor on Jan 7th 2023

    The process was easy. I called and asked some questions. The person was very helpful. The turtle (name: Muscles) came two days later. It has been healthy and looks really cool. They called and emailed me twice before the turtle came and said they were worried about the low temp in my state for shipping. They actually cared about getting the turtle to us safely. This company is a win
