Yes, red eared sliders and yellow bellied sliders are both subspecies of "pond slider", in the wild where their range overlaps they mate quite often producing what are called "intergrades". The particular intergrade between a yellow bellied slider and a red eared slider often has features of both, large yellow markings on the head with a red corner.

The red eared slider does, but the yellow bellied slider does not.

Well, I think it depends on the species. I have 2 turtles. One is a red eared slider and the other is a yellowbellied slider. They get together fine but my 3rd turtle (a map) got killed by my red eared slider and that brings it back to me thinking it depends on the species.

No. Red eared sliders are water turtles, while box turtles are land turtles.:)

Yes red ear sliders have to bask because if they don't, the shell of the red ear slider will soften and he or she will be very sick and might die, and if your red ear slider does not bask, then just place he or she there with a UV light.

can two slider turtles live together?

A Red Eared Slider can only "procreate" (have young) with another Red Eared Slider but they have been known to "mate" (have sex) with Yellow Belly Sliders. They probably wouldn't try to mate with any other kind of turtle, other than a Slider.

Hopefully you have a terrarium, because the box turtle is a land turtle, and the red eared slider is an aquatic turtle.

You breed a male and female Red Eared slider. Albino's are not different species of turtles, they are just a different version of that specie, but I am breeding turtles as well and you can also have an albino map turtle and so on and on...
