Pretty big. Like a 9 on the internationally known Pofus Scale for rating the size of red eared sliders.

Red eared sliders live for around 40 years and get to be 10-12 inches.

Ghost Red Eared Slider Turtles will get to be the same size as normal Red Eared Slider Turtles, which is 10-12 inches.

aquatic plants, fruit and insects.,red ear sliders eat fish but you half to make sure the fish are small you don't want them to big i have turtles of my own'Red eared sliders eat plants and animals. Young red eared sliders eat more protein like waxworms, earthworms, fish, shrimp and if you have pets you can feed them turtle pellets sometimes. The older they get, the more they like plants and vegetables like collard greens and kale. My big red eared slider once ate a mouse!

you need a big tank 55 gallons and up because they get pretty big and you need a heat lamp, dock and turtle food

they can eat guppies and betta fish the betta fish will put up a fight sometimes they wont eat the fish and just leave the fish there for a tank mate if there is any amount in a tank together but if you put to many big turtles in a tank with little turtles the big ones will eat it

They should have at least a 40 gal tank. The tank should long not tall.

well the girl are big with short claws and the boy are small with long claws

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.

A baby red-eared slider does not need a big tank. However, turtles grow fairly quickly, so, if you buy a tiny tank, you will have to buy a larger one when the turtle grows. So, to save money, you might want to just buy a large, adult-sized tank, and let the turtle grow into it. When I first got my red-eared slider (two and a half years ago), she was only a hatchling, about the size of a silver dollar (like, an inch and a half). At first, I got her a tiny tank (see the Related Link). When she grew too big for that, I got her a tank that was 12 inches long and 10 inches wide. Then she grew too big for that, so, now she lives in a tank that is 20 inches long and 12 inches wide.

Well, I have two red-eared sliders. And I just fill their tank with a lot of small rocks since I go to the beach sometimes, and I have so many rocks in my backyard. You don't have to do that, but then the "droppings" and food that's not eaten would sink to the floor and your turtle(s) would be swimming in it. If you have rocks, sometimes those things are buried underneath. I also have like small "trees" for decorations, and a shallow rock. If your turtle(s) are big and you realize the tank is REALLY dirty when you clean it, you should get a bigger tank or clean it more often. I clean mine 3-4 days and by then, it's really dirty. Well I hope this helped! If you have any more "caring for turtles" questions, just ask me!

The Big-Eared Hopping-Mouse is extinct.

Big-eared opossum was created in 1826.

While small a 20 gallon long tank would be suffient, the key is turtles grow quickly and they will probably need a 40-55 gallon tank within a year, maybe 2. So unless you want to upgrade tanks I would say go with the biggest you can get initally to save money. They need a dock or something they can get completely out of the water, but area to swim. They also need proper lighting for UV-B absorbtion. Live fish in the tank would give them free eating but you also need pellets with good nurtition and cuttle bone for management of their beak growth. Hope this helps!
