Yes as long as they are of similar sizes and completely healthy.

A red eared slider can go without food for atleast 7 days, ( That's a whole week!) I had to do the same thing leaving my read eared slider home, but if you put in some food before you leave and a Turtle Bone (TM) He will be fine, try looking the turtle bone on

While sleeping, a red ear slider can hold its breath for a couple of hours. When awake, it can hold its breath for about a half an hour.

For Red Eared Turtles a female has short nails and a male as long sharp nails.

If your Red Eared Slider Turtle is not eating, it could mean a few things. They could be sick, their water could be too cold, or they are just being stubborn. If they don't eat for a long time, then you really should contact a vet, pricy as it may be.

Well, my red-eared slider sleeps all night long (8 or 9 hours).

to see if a red eared slider is a boy or girl, look at the claws and tail. if they r long it is a girl. if they r short it is a boy. I know because I have two of them

No you can not!! If your turtle has long nails that means you have a male turtle. If you cut his nails you are risking it to bleed to death and be in an excruciating pain. Long nails on your male turtle is natural and normal and is not a problem.

A 17-inch red-eared slider would probably hold the Guinness World Record for biggest red-eared slider turtle. A very large adult red-eared slider is a little over a foot long from the tip of the nose to the tip of the tail, with a shell around 8 to 9 inches long. A more average size (especially for males, which are generally smaller) is around 9 to 10 inches from nose to tail, with a 6 to 7 inch shell.

Red eared slider turtles grow to be 10-12 inches long. A healthy turtle that is fed and cared for in the right way, in the right habitat, will grow about 1/4 inch a month. They can live for about 40 years.

It depends what kind of turtle it is. Red eared slider turtles start out small but then grow to be close to 10 inches long.

They should have access to a source of water as well as a place to get out of the water at all times.

I'm sure it would. But a RES is not dumb. If they get too hot they will go back in the water.

Red ear slider turtle eggs take 60-80 days to hatch on average.

Some tortoises have been known to live over 100 years but the average turtle lives about 30 (red eared slider) to 80 (sea turtles and box turtles).

Just as long as they can't get a hold of the turtle, or the tank.

not very long. it is best to keep your red eared slider in the water.

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.

They can sleep under water because they can hold their breath for a very long time.

A lot of water; 10 gallons of water per 1 inch of shell. So if the turtle is 8" long it should have at least 80 gallons of water.
