How long can red eared slider live without water?
Red-Eared Slider can stay dry for days to weeks, but they cannot eat without water, I mean enough water to site in while eating as they cannot swallow without the ad of water. If you are transporting the red-Eared being dry is okay, keeping a turtle as a pet dry will be almost considered torture as they will slowly die of starvation and dehydration
Red Eared Slider Turtles live in medium to deep ponds found in the southern to eastern United States. You can see them in the water or up on logs and rocks if you are really quite and sneak up on them. The red eared slider inhabits lakes, marshes and rivers from Texas to Ohio, and most of the midwest. However, there are numerous invasive populations in other parts of the country from released pet turtles…
I don't recommend that you purchase another species to live with your red-eared slider(s). In the end one of your pets will be eaten, harassed, or they might even pass parasites to one another. Therefore I suggest you get another red-eared slider rather than a whole different species to keep company for your pet. Remember the more terrapins you own, the more space is required.
Can a central American wood turtle Red Eared Slider be housed in the same outside pen in the summer?
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…
I'm pretty sure. I've had a red eared slider and an Ouachita map turtle living together in the same tank for about... I don't know exactly... Maybe about 3 years? They are friendly toward each other (well, they aren't mean to each other) so I'm pretty sure they can be in the same tank. But my red eared slider did grow up together.
