Red-eared Slider Turtle Up for Adoption

We currently have one Red-eared Slider available for adoption.

Name: Toby

Species: Red-Eared Slider Turtle (Trachemys scripta elegans)

Gender: female

Age: 16 years

Shell Length: 23 cm


Toby is a bit shy at first, but once you get to know her, she is very friendly and gentle. She is a big girl with a shell length of 23 cm. She needs an owner who is prepared for her to get even bigger and intends on keeping her for the rest of her life (this species generally lives 30-40 years and can reach up to 30 cm shell length). Her tank needs to be at least 100 gallons in size and ideally larger. She is a very happy turtle and she is ready to meet her new family!
