Red-eared Slider (Trachemys scripta elegans) is the most common “Pet Shop Turtle” throughout the years in the world. It is massively farmed and millions are produced every year.
Red-eared sliders can be distinguished from all other North American turtles by the presence of a broad red stripe behind the eye. Some specimens, especially older males, become melanistic or black, which makes identification difficult. Red-eared sliders prefer quiet water with a muddy bottom and abundant vegetation, but they are also rarely found in moving waters. Although mortality rates are high among the young, adults are believed to live as long as 50-75 years.
This species is sensitive to cold temperatures over the northern portion of its range. Hatchlings overwinter in their nests. female red-eared sliders are typically larger than males. Males typically mature when they reach a plastron length of 90-100mm, between 2-5 years of age. Females at plastron lengths between 150 and 195 mm. Courtship occurs in Spring and Fall. Nests are excavated along the banks well above water, or some times considerable distances from water. Nests are excavated to a depth of 120-140 cm. Clutch size varies from 2-19 eggs, and is typically between 7 and 13. Eggs are white and usually measure between 23.5 and 44.2 mm in length and 18.4 to 24.6 mm in width. Eggs hatch in approximately 68-70 days and newborns are 20-35 mm long.
This species is omnivorous consuming whatever is available. Juveniles tend to be more carnivorous whereas older specimens tend to be more herbivorous. This species typically grows to approximately 203 mm with a maximum size of 289 mm recorded.
Red-eared sliders are believed to naturally occur in the Mississippi valley from northern Illinois and Indiana to the northern Gulf of Mexico, west to Texas and east to western Alabama.
Red-eared sliders may compete with native turtles for trophic resources and nesting areas.
