Reply The Super Jebs June 30, 2013 She looks like she's going to cry lol Reply Yosra Neda July 3, 2013 oh, that's something that you would call ''soft shell'', which probably means that it isn't basking under it's uvb(<– ubv?) lamp and is lacking the vitamin d3 it will be needing, and YES this can be fatal to your own red eared slider so watch out. Do you have a platform it could bask on? Or are you using one of those floating logs?

I my self have 2 Slider turtles, sadly from China Town in SouthernCalifornia (they are commonly sold there). I watched your other Slider Turtlevideos, and about there sizes, habitat, and behavior is all true. Over a fewyears they do get hard & messy to take care of. Even mine are right now.I had mine for around 10 years, a hassle to clean their (sadly a glass fish tank,its roomy though, so no worries there) but I still love them and comfort them.Don't plan of tossing them in the wild, but may have to give them to a TurtleFoundation to take care of them, if they exist. Reply Hobo Aquatics March 8, 2014 I'm a current slider owner and I purchased it as a baby from a "china town" area as a baby the size of a quarter. It is now roughly 5 to 6 inches long and doing quite well. Only issue is, she only has her right eye. eating fish is a rare event for her. sigh… Reply Tina Lin March 14, 2014 Thanks for the help! Im learning about how to take care of them so they wont die(mine died because I didnt know how to take care of them). Reply Mark Jackson May 1, 2014 I have one of tho's Reply BlueKazuki May 20, 2014 The worst part of owning a slider turtle is the online "experts". Even this woman who was supposed to answer the question "What's a Red-Eared Slider?" just kept talking about "don't do this, don't do that, never do this" and made having a turtle feel like its the worst pet ever. She could've at least smiled.

Reply Saphina Collet August 9, 2014 My turtles are still young but starting to believe that one is male and the other is female.

Reply Frog Frog July 18, 2015 Aww.. the adorable red eared slider, shes so, kawaaaaiiiii Reply Dwight Goliday Jr August 4, 2015 Man, I want some more! #TurtlePower Reply Dreamcast Fanatic October 23, 2015 Is their any breed that just grown up to 4 inches. About 10 years ago I was given one, it was a baby I assume illegal , uncle got it from china town and it was so small. A couple of months it got sick, stopped eating but it slowly got better. So 10 years later and its 4 maybe 5 and a half inches from nose to tail. Other than the size it seems happy, healthy and active. I always wondered if there was a breed of small red eared sliders or if its lack of growth was due to it getting sick when it was young.
