res (red eared sliders) can go along time under water;don't worry about it just make sure they have a nice spot to reach and get air.
They can sleep for as long as they want some like to sleep on their rock while some like to sleep underwater both of my sliders love to sleep underwater.
They are reptiles... indefinitely, but they will become dehydrated after a certain amount of time. RES generally need to be submersed under water to drink and eat.
well they are aquatic so they will probably drink water from the tank
Sure, they do it in the wild. If you have pet red eared sliders and geese then as long as the geese don't pick on the the turtles you will be fine.
they wont live very long cause they get dry so fast so about one hour
Baby red-eared sliders... well for starters, don't worry about them drowning underwater. Just give them enough water so that their head is above the water. As long as they have some rocks on the side so that they can bask, you're good. =) Source: experience
They dig a hole in the mud with their long claws
Yes, as long as they can fit in their mouth.
Red-eared sliders don't need to stay with their mothers past egg stage.
in captivity 20 to 40 years with great care
No they cannot because they are very different than tortoises who can live without water but with turtles they are amphibious which means they HAVE TO HAVE WATER WITH THEM AT ALL TIMES.
I have one and i read that as long as they have something to drink from above water they'll be fine and they can stay up outta water for about 1 hour to 2 hours at the max.
When owning a pet it is important to know how long it will grow. Red Eared Slider Turtles grow for about 3-5 years depending on their habitat.
As long as the fish isn't any bigger than it.
Yes, sliders are one type of turtle capable of sleeping under water. They can last for surprisingly long amounts of time but will automatically wake up to rise for air when oxygen levels become low. Even though all are capable, some turtles will non the less choose to sleep with their bodies submerged in water with only their noses or full head out. I've even seen some turtles taking naps totally out of the water. So yes, red eared slider turtles can safely sleep under water if they so choose to.
Just as long as they can't get a hold of the turtle, or the tank.
just check if it has long claws a long tail and a pointy head.if it does, that means its a male.
for along time up to like 20 mins!
Females have to be about 5-7 years old, 7 in. long. Males 2-5 years, old 4 inches long.
Wild red eared sliders live about 20 years. Red eared sliders that live in an aquarium (that has a filter and a heater) can live up to 85 years. You always need to have a light for any aquarium turtle to rest in the "sun" or your turtle will not be that happy... I have one and is eight years so Turt has a long way to go.
Red-eared sliders need an adequate amount of water in which to swim. ... Red-eared sliders are strong swimmers, so you don't need to worry about drowning as long as the turtle can get out of the water and there is no place it can get trapped underwater
2 days max after that if you put food in they will run for it and why would you ask this?
well the girl are big with short claws and the boy are small with long claws
They can sleep under water because they can hold their breath for a very long time.
