A 2 inch red eared slider is a baby there folly grown wen there about 5-12 inches depending the sex.
they can live anywhere from 10-40
Male red eared sliders can breed when they are two to four years old, and females when they are five to seven years old.
count the rings on it's back
Red Eared sliders are aggressive over food, territory mates, etc. Most likely it was due to that aggression. I would suggest separating the sliders and taking the injured slider a vet. Good Luck!
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
Red-eared turtles usually grow 1 to 1 1/2 inches a year. so your turtle is probably around 6 years of age.
Its really a gamble to put any fish with a red eared slider , it depends how big the sucker fish is if it is small the turtle with probably eat it , you are supposed to let them grow up together i have a sucker fish with my red eared slider but they are baby's so they have not bothered it.
let them hear it as it drops in to the cage.
It dose not matter what age they have to be to eat earth worms
our red slider turtle is 1 1/2 years old and she will eat 5 small goldfish at a time.
of course! i have a baby red eared slider living with a big 8 inch turtle and they get along! you have to make sure they know and like each other before you put them both in the same tank
I have a baby red ear slider I feed mine commercial pellets and Krill shrimp because baby red ear sliders need ore protean but if its an adult you have you should be feeding him veggies like lettuce and pellets and comerical food containg krill gammarus and shrimp or live food like worms or guppies I have an adult yellow belly slider and he likes lettuce and comerical food and hes a 6 year old turtle and hes doing just fine i don't feed him live food though.
"Unfortunately, you can not tell the age of a turtle by it's size. Turtles grow depending on how big their environment is." Actually, no. A red eared slider does NOT grow to their environment. If you feed it, it will grow. If not it will, obviously not grow then die. But there is no way to tell how old a RES is unless you hatched it or know who hatched it. It does not matter how big it is. Some owners over feed or under feed their turtles so there is no way determining it by size either.
Turtles can reproduce when they're sexually mature, usually around 5 years old.
Same as any other animal, either old age or some kind of disease.
Yes. The most common fish a Red Eared Slider will eat is Commet Goldfish. Red eared sliders will eat fish, but fish are full of worms and parasites which will contaminate your filter. For an indoor slider I suggest only pellets and veggies. Plus they eat parts of the fish and the rest you would have to clean out right away. My slider loves just his pellets, he snubs romaine lettuce and any other veggie I have tried. Ice berg lettuce is not good for sliders either. I have a 4 year old slider that is 5 inches long he is in a 40 gallon tank alone.
Most Turtles age very slowly. The red eared Slider can remain the size of a quarter for about 1-2 years, but by age 10 he will be the size of a small dinner plate, and by age 30 (they can live to be about 50)your Turtle can weigh up t0 20 lbs.
If he's young he is still getting use to his habitat. If he's old try some different foods.
At one year.
They generally have wider necks and thicker tails.......You can not tell till about 18 months to 2 years old though.......the male has longer claws.....
personally i recently introduced a 6 month old turtle to the troupe,my larger female of 7 years can be very rough and tried to bite Him/her i would see how they go and keep you have on you larger turtle whilst introducing them,my smaller male of 4 years seems very protective over my smaller one.
56 years old.
