It may be because it's sick or have an illness. I don't take care of a red eared slider but I do take care of a baby red belly turtle.

If you bought a turtle illegally can you take it to a vet?

I don't think they care about that. However, a lot of veterinary practices do not treat turtles, or any reptiles, for that matter. Usually it's just dogs and cats, and maybe birds. My vet would definitely not see a turtle.If you can find a vet who sees turtles, then I wouldn't worry about the fact that you got the turtle illegally. More often than not, I think, people buy their turtles illegally. I got mine from a Chinese woman on 96th Street and Broadway. She had a whole tank full of tiny baby hatchlings (red-eared sliders), and it is illegal to sell a red-eared slider that is under 3 inches in the state of New York.I don't think law enforcement really cares that much about people who buy illegal turtles. They care about the people who are selling illegal turtles. And veterinarians care about the health and well-being of animals, a lot more than they care about where you got them from.

What do I do If my red eared slider lays eggs and i don't want them?

Type your answer here... The large tortoises from the Galapagus Islands can live more than 200 years. Some American box turtle have been documented at over 100 years old.

Can you put turtules and tropical fish in the same tank?

Yes. Turtles are very fond of any fish. However, turtles should normally not be kept with fish. Turtles produce a large amount of waste, resulting in very dirty water, resulting in dead fish. I've kept a red eared slider with goldfish in a 55 gallon tank and had to change the water every two to three days, even with two filters. A very large tank (several hundred gallons) can be used to keep one or two turtles and some large fish that can take care of themselves.
