What is habitat of a turtle?

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.
