They need to have access to a place to get out of water as they wish, regardless the amount of time.
Why not it is not called a water turtle.
yes it can i hav a red eared turtle and it can sleep underwater
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. But, if they were to try, it would probably be a similar species of water turtle like an Eastern Painted Turtle or a Map turtle.
Cheek it water it needs to be warm.
A red ear slider can live for 2 day
I suppose you can but any benefit no. Get different water plants
no RES turtles are fresh water turtles
As much as possible, atleast 10 gallons.
No. Red eared sliders are water turtles, while box turtles are land turtles.:)
no,slider turtles have fixed tongues but no saliva for that reason they must eat inside water
Yes, I put my baby slider in a sand filled terrarium over night and feed him in water and he is doing ok
I have a central American wood turtle aswell. beautiful shell colors , huh? well no, because the red ear-slider turtle is more of an aqautic turtle whilst the central American orante wood turtle is more land-but still needs some water. not above 3" of water for the central American, and the red eared slider can live in up to 5 feet of water. the central American wood turtle should not be placed in deep water as it will drown.
They should have access to a source of water as well as a place to get out of the water at all times.
It depends if its a red eared slider or a paint turtle or a snapping turtle (witch i doubt you have) im just gonna tell you all of the ones i listed red eared slider if its the first time first time 2 to 20 for a paint turtle 2 to 20 eggs and a snapping turtle 1 to ten so i hoped i helped
If your Red Eared Slider Turtle is not eating, it could mean a few things. They could be sick, their water could be too cold, or they are just being stubborn. If they don't eat for a long time, then you really should contact a vet, pricy as it may be.
It won't harm the turtle - but the eggs should be removed from the water as soon as possible.
no way a res turtle lives mainly in water and a box turtle live on land there care is just to diffrent for them live together.
A lot of water; 10 gallons of water per 1 inch of shell. So if the turtle is 8" long it should have at least 80 gallons of water.
Box Turtles are land turtles and mate on land and Sliders are water turtles and mate in the water, so this would never happen and if it did, they would not be able "procreate" (have young). A Red Eared Slider can only procreate with another Red Eared Slider but they have been known to "mate" (have sex) with Yellow Bellied Sliders. They probably wouldn't try to mate with any other kind of turtle, other than a similar species of water turtle like a Painted Turtle or maybe a Map Turtle. A Slider probably would not try to mate with a Soft Shell Turtle or a Snapping Turtle even though they live in the same water or any species of land turtle like a Box Turtle because they would not recognize it as a possible mate. When a Red Eared Slider tries to mate with a Yellow Bellied Slider, it is because its instincts are telling it that based on size, shape, and mating displays and behaviors, etc., it is another Red Eared Turtle. Interestingly, Red Eared Sliders and Yellow Bellied Sliders rages currently overlap and where they do there is a lot of unsuccessful mating going on between the two species but they cannot procreate. That is part of the "definition" of a separate species. There are very few species of land turtles in the Eastern Box Turtle's Range that it could mistake for another Box Turtle and try to mate with. For much of its range the only other land turtle around would be the Wood Turtle (AKA: Red Legged Turtle) and they are not very similar.
The kind of turtle that has a red spot behind his eye is a red-eared slider. The turtles often live near or in bodies of water.
Use a thermometer ! You, as a keeper, should know the temperature ranges suitable for a RES.
When you feed a red eared slider, the food should be in the water.
Your turtle may be sleepy because the water is too cold. Check the temperature. You may need a heater.
I'm sure it would. But a RES is not dumb. If they get too hot they will go back in the water.
Yes, the more room a turtle has, the more happy it will and it will live longer. Make sure the water is clean and it has plants and big rocks!
