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 turtles live in both ,water and land
No. Red eared sliders are water turtles, while box turtles are land turtles.:)
i think so
no RES turtles are fresh water turtles
not very long. it is best to keep your red eared slider in the water.
Fresh what if you have salt water they might die
No, they just drink out of the water they swim in.
No they do not breathe under water. They have lungs. Aquatic turtles such as the red - eared slider can hold their breath for 3 - 4 hours.
ever animal needs water ever animal needs water
no but it will make them very sick if they dont have enough water
no,slider turtles have fixed tongues but no saliva for that reason they must eat inside water
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
No. Semi-Aquatic Turtles like the Red eared Slider will only lay eggs on land, not under water.
Most turtles slow down their breathing and hold their breath and they can hold their breath for longs periods of time.
Red-Eared Sliders are Semi-Aquatic turtles.
i think that is has something to do h the temp of the water and if it doesnt have declorinator in the tank
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, especially in southeastern states.
They eat pellets (thats the best), vegetables (lettuce,cucumber etc.) and fruits.
When you feed a red eared slider, the food should be in the water.
they get warm by basking in the sun or aquarium uvb/uva light.they cool down in the water and/or in shade.
No they cannot breath underwater. However, they can use lactate fermentation to survive much longer underwater than you or I could. In fact, the red-eared slider can stay completely submerged in the water for as long as two whole weeks. ~Skularach
A baby red eared slider needs as much as two of its shells sideways.
