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.
Cheek it water it needs to be warm.
It probly means it is sick or dieing.
she does but Inez should change her mind about slider and start to like Matt already
Yes, fish are the Red Eared Slider turtles natural prey. Your turtle will enjoy chasing around the fish and eating them as well.
A yellow-bellied slider that is lethargic and dragging his back legs has a serious problem. He may have an infection or an injury. He should be seen as soon as possible by a veterinarian whose practice includes reptiles.
If you cannot spend most of your time with your slider, get him/her a companion. This type of animal will get very depressed if left alone. They are great pets, but need constant attention.
Red-eared slider turtles usually can only breed successfully if they have hibernated before, and turtles kept in tanks rarely hibernate. There is a miniscual chance your turtles will breed if they have not hibernated.
you should sepperet them
Because the water in aquarium is too cold! It'll die unless you get a heater! If you have a heater and it's not eating, you have nothing to worry about.
1stly its not "red eye slider", its "red eared slider". the biting may be his way of saying keep out of my territory. you should separate themin these cases
good names for a red eared slider should be based on their personality/what they're like. hope this helped.
no,slider turtles have fixed tongues but no saliva for that reason they must eat inside water
Every 6 months you should take the Red Eared Slider Turtle to the vet
your red ear slider isn't eating because they are timid animals and it is probaly scared of you try fider fish first if that dosent work the put in floating pellets and leave the room.
2 weeks if hibernating but awaken only 3 days
I wouldn't recommend it - since the RES will view the fish as food !
Yes they can live in a pond but I don't think you should keep your red ear slider in a pond in winter or fall
