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.**

    Red Ear Slider

    Posted by Gloria Benson on Aug 2nd 2023

    I received my baby red ear slider on time just as they said. The little one is doing very well. Eating good and very attentive. The Turtle Source was very helpful when I called them for questions.

    The turtle was delivered when they said it would be here, and it is very healthy. Numerous members of staff kindly answered the many questions we had. Highly recommend them!

    Had a problem with UPS delivery. They notified me it would be a day late. Called The Turtle Source and I got the turtle as scheduled.

    Red Eared Slider Hatchling

    Posted by Mariah Williams on Jun 8th 2023

    Came super fast and early. The hatchling was alive and looked good and its extremely active by trying to run away lol. But great packaging and I’m happy with my purchase!

    So Happy with My Order !

    Posted by Anesha Sandiford on May 28th 2023

    At first I was skeptical to order, but I really wanted a turtle since they aren’t sold in NY. But I was happy with what I received, my turtle came well packaged and even came with some food ! I recommend The Turtle Source to anyone looking !

    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.
