Meet this distinguished-looking red-eared slider turtle! I’d name him Michaelangelo or Raphael, but we won’t know if it’s a boy or girl until it reaches maturity! If you’re interested in giving this turtle its forever home, please contact Kelly Thomas with A Critter’s Chance rescue in Plainfield, either by phone [(765) 430-5610] or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). There is NO adoption fee for this turtle.
This turtle is …
– 7-8 inches long and growing, potentially reaching up to 12 inches.
– looking to live in a large tank or pond; this turtle is NOT able to survive on its own in the wild.
I’ve included links on the red-eared slider turtle and Indiana’s DNR reptile and amphibian regulations, along with tips on how to care for a pet turtle. Keep in mind that a person cannot own more than four red-eared slider turtles; also, these turtles can live to be over 20 years old, some living as old as 40 in captivity.
