Yellow-bellied sliders have a completely yellow plastron (bottom shell) but a red-eared slider will have ring-like markings on their plastron.
The red eared slider does, but the yellow bellied slider does not.
Yes, red eared sliders and yellow bellied sliders are both subspecies of "pond slider", in the wild where their range overlaps they mate quite often producing what are called "intergrades". The particular intergrade between a yellow bellied slider and a red eared slider often has features of both, large yellow markings on the head with a red corner.
A slider turtle is basically like a category of turtles including the Yellow Belly Slider Turtle and the Red Eared Slider turtle.
I don't think there is such a thing as a yellow eared slider. Try looking up yellow bellied sliders. That's probably what you're looking for.
Yes, a Red Eared Slider has a spine.
by the way you have described it it sounds as if it is a yellow bellied slider, if it has to red marks on the sides of its cheeks/head it will be a red eared slider.
I know Red Eared Slider Turtles do that before mating. Males do it to females.
Yes. They are very similar to Red Eared Sliders except the "ears" are the same color as their jaw markings.
Most turtles found in freshwater ponds that are yellow and green are called red eared sliders. In their younger years they have yellow in them but as they age they begin to lose their color. The red eared slider has a red streak behind its eyes as well...It could also be a yellow eared slider as well which doesn't have the red streaks behind the eyes, instead yellow.
I dont know it depends on the red eared slider
today July 7 10 i let my red eared slider go into the wild because he was getting to big and he was 3 years old was excited and ran straight into a lake that has lots of red and yellow eared slider turtles in it so i think he very happy
A Red Eared Slider can only "procreate" (have young) with another Red Eared Slider but they have been known to "mate" (have sex) with Yellow Belly Sliders. They probably wouldn't try to mate with any other kind of turtle, other than a Slider.
No, but red eared sliders can breed with yellowbellieds.
Clown Fish, they love red eared slider turtle.
My friend has 2 red eared sliders and they have red ears so that is why they are red eared slider and if there ear is orange they might just be young or been in the water it went away but mostly it just means they are young. My answer: That's completely natural if it's just orange, but if it's yellow, it's a yellow slider :)
The answer is yes, Red-eared sliders have been band in the state of Florida as pets for this very reason. People buy a baby red-eared slider then don't realize they grow so large and release them in the wild. In the wild they have mated with yellow-bellied sliders.
Yes, red eared sliders and yellow bellied slidersare both part of the slider family, so they are easy to cross breed. If you go to a pet shop, you will notice that most baby yellow bellied sliders have faint red 'ears' because they were interbred with red eared sliders.
Red eared slider turtles bask though out the day. There is no specific time that they prefer.
Ghost Red Eared Slider Turtles will get to be the same size as normal Red Eared Slider Turtles, which is 10-12 inches.
