How big do baby red eared slider turtles get?

The red eared slider typically grows to approximately 203 mm with a maximum size of 289 mm recorded (Conant and Collins, 1991)! If they are kept in the right conditions, and are healthy, well fed, and looked after, red eared sliders can grow VERY BIG, usually around the size of a dinner plate. A male red eared slider will reach its sexual maturity between 2-3 years, and the female 3-4 years. Turtles will grow to their tank size, which means if you have a baby turtle in a big tank by it's self, it will grow quite quickly, whereas if you had a bigger turtle in a small tank it would probably not grow much more, and if so, pretty slowly.
