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.**

    Awesome little turtle

    Posted by Frank on Feb 19th 2022

    Our turtle arrived on time, healthy and active. It only took 15 minutes for him to start exploring his new home and climbing on the 'rock pile' filter. We dropped a couple food pellets in and up snatched them right up!

    The turtle source experience

    Posted by Paul Davis on Feb 3rd 2022

    My overall experience exceeded expectations. I was really impressed with the shipping process. They kept me aware of the climate requirements for healthy and safe shipping to my area. They worked with me via text and delivered my two healthy gorgeous turtles safely. The price difference between $19.00 advertised and $29.00 actual payment for the red eared sliders was a little confusing however that could vary depending on the age and selection. Overall it was a great experience . I would recommend them .
