Yellow Bellied Slider

(18) Write a Review

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.

    While I wasn't thrilled about the packaging my new baby arrived safe, healthy and with a surprising amount of food. He is very happy, loveable and was clearly well taken care of. I highly recommend Turtle Source!!

    Very pleased with my hatchling turtle purchase! It arrived very well packaged, ventilation, food and heat pack to keep hatchling warm. The baby turtle is so small and looks very healthy. Will be purchasing again in the future. Thank you.
