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.

    Purchase review

    Posted by Amy Chambers on Feb 22nd 2023

    Best website to order from. We have ordered through others in the past and this one is the best one by far if you have any concerns or worries. Even through the Covid pandemic. You will receive your turtle within shipping expectation. Costumer service is a plus if needed you will actually get a response and an answer . The turtles are always packaged with care, not over done or unnecessary packaging added just for show that’s not needed. Turtles are very healthy and active when arrive. Hatchlings adjust very well and start eating quickly soon after delivery. They all are different in their own way but adjust well in time. Based on our experience through multiple sites where you can order a turtle this is the site to do so if you are questioning, hesitate, or have any doubts… use this one. Any negative reviews you read are probably from people who would not be satisfied no matter what & nothing in life would make them happy …. The type people that always leave negative reviews no matter what, or from unforeseen or uncontrollable circumstances that just happen sometimes in life, or from someone with lack of common sense. We have NEVER had an issues with this company. My husband and I are active in wildlife ### and educaters. This is my first review after multiple + orders over the last several years as I am about to order again I pulled the review email up through my email searching for the link to their site. Sorry to this company that I have never left a review but over the years and from many experiences I wish no one the frustration of other sites and to guide them to only this one . If they don’t have what you are looking for at the moment then my advice is to be patient until available.

    Healthy Yellow Bellied Turtles

    Posted by Elaine F on Feb 16th 2023

    They arrived safely overnight, well packaged along with a zip lock of turtle food. All three were perky and alert, and immediately went for their food. I thought they might not eat until they got used to their new surroundings, but no problem for these cute hatchlings.

    This little guy is healthy, always awake, and very shy. He's a real cutie and I know we'll be friends soon. Haven't seen him eat yet, but I think he thinks that we're still building trust. He's very lively; I just approach the tank and he desperately swims another direction and tries to hide. Hilarious!
