Fresh what if you have salt water they might die
Yes, baby red eared sliders need the heating light on all of the time, as well as a UVA/UVB during the day.
Yes, red-eared sliders need a dry area to get out of the water. Above this area should be a turtle basking lamp. Aquatic turtles will bask daily. Basking keeps the turtle's skin and shell health from fungus while the UV in the light is needed for the turtles growth. Without a dry area and a basking light your turtle will not be healthy and happy.
these turtles live in fresh water ......... n they cam b messy .... so need a frequent water change...... may b a couple of days without a filter
Red Eared Sliders are water turtles so they need water but sand can be in their tank with them. Sand tends to clog filters though, so gravel would be a better option.
They are semi-aquatic. They need a basking light and a basking area such as a floating log or basking platform so that they can climb out of the water to bask. This is essential to their health. If a red eared slider doesn't have an area to bask and can't get out of the water, it's shell will get soft and it will eventually die. They need UVA and UVB light in order to process their food. Heat and light are essential for these turtles. Keep them in water around 70 degrees and provide a basking area and a basking light that has both UVA and UVB rays or two lights, including one UVA and one UVB bulb.
Pet turtles need water, food, a tank with a rock on it and a light.Answered by AUNTCANDYLUVER OR CANDYLUVER FROM HORSE ISLE
No need to care for it. There are already enough red eared sliders in the world.
For a land tortoise, you will need a UV light (that provides artificial sunlight), Vegetables, substrate (dirt), and a hiding place. For water turtles You will need all this + bugs and water.
They will, but go to website"Red eared Sliders as pets, there you will find all you need to know about these turtles as pets.
No, you can change and clean out the tank about every 2 weeks. I have 2 red eared sliders one is 1 year and one is 5 years. A filter is better but you don't need one to keep your turtles.
Every 6 months you should take the Red Eared Slider Turtle to the vet
All animals need water to live. Turtles are animals.
yes but u NEED a small dry spot so they can bask under a uv light
They need alot of water
Turtles are cold-blooded and need heat and light to warm up, and the water they live in is cold.
All turtles need to have mated in order to lay eggs, unlike birds who will lay infertile eggs, turtles won't.
Aquatic turtles need to live in water. How deep depends on the species. Turtles like painted turtles or slider turtles need water to be as deep as possible. Turtles like musk and snapping turtles need shallower water. They have to have land too, a turtle need to be able to completely dry off when ever they want to. Tortoises or box turtles need a shallow, easy to climb in, dish that is big enough for then to fit in so they can sit in it and drink when ever they want.
No. Turtles are reptiles. They need to breathe air.
Any normal filter will work. Chacha on!!
Turtles need to be kept in 72 to 85 degrees tempature.
no,You need both uva and uvb light
no you just need a uv light (keep on for 8 hours aday) and a water heater (keep on all the time on 24 - 28c)
It depends on the species of turtle. Some are water turtles like the red eared slider and some are land turtles like the box turtle. You would need to know the species to know the preferred habitat. If keeping the turtle as a pet, you'll want to create a habitat similar to that they would have in the wild.For red ear sliders, yellow bellied sliders and water turtles, they will need a large aquarium with a filter and aeration. They need heat lamps and a docking platform so they can get out of the water and bask to dry their shell. They need UVA and UVB light in order to digest food and stay healthy.Land turtles, including the gulf coast box turtle, need a box of soil mixture, a water bowl, a hiding place and a heat lamp. For the substrate, use a mixture of soil and moss.
they think they need water
