Product Description

Yellow Bellied Sliders are mostly aquatic and love to bask. They make excellent starter turtles, and adults will add color to outdoor ponds in all but the coldest temperature zones. They do well in tanks, with primarily water setups, and get along very well when kept with most other species.

They bask frequently, and often pile on top of each other for the highest possible sunning position. In community set ups, Yellow Bellied Sliders are usually the first turtle that will become tame - setting the example for other species. Yellow Bellied Sliders are omnivorous, eating pellets, most greens, insects, fish, mollusks etc. Water plants are a favorite food and a favorite“hang out. They are a fine species for community tanks and ponds.

    I ordered 2 turtles for my grandsons. I was hesitant to order by Mail but I couldn’t find anything appropriate locally. They arrived when they said they would and after a bit of adjustment to their new habitat, seemed happy and healthy.

    The turtle came quickly, properly packaged, alert and healthy! I got this turtle as a gift to my brother and it was shipped to him without any issues! He loves his new turtle! I will most likely order from turtle source again!
