Title: Red Eared Slider Secrets

Here are just a few things that I will teach you in this book just about selecting the right Red-Eared Slider:

  • Due to the dwindling population of wild Red-Eared Sliders, many are now bred in captivity, which is great for prospective pet owners.
  • It is important to think about the place where you plan to purchase your Red-Eared Slider, and take the time to make sure the one that you bring home is healthy.
  • Turtles bred in captivity are generally healthier than wild turtles, which may be infested with mites, ticks or internal parasites.
  • It is possible purchase Red-Eared Sliders via mail order from commercial dealers and breeders.
  • If you choose to bring home a Red-Eared Slider from the wild, the first thing you should do is take it to a vet who has experience with reptiles. You will also want to keep your wild turtle quarantined for about a month to make sure no health problems are present that may affect your family or other pets in your home.
  • Purchasing your Red-Eared Slider from a pet store provides you with the opportunity to inspect the turtle and its habitat before purchase to determine if the animal has been cared for properly.
  • If a Red-Eared Slider is healthy, its nostrils will be clean so it can breathe through its nose easily as opposed to breathing through its mouth. There should not be any mucus or other fluids running out of or bubbling around the nose, nor should you be able to hear it breathing.
  • The eyes of a Red-Eared Slider should be bright and clear without any cloudy fluids or discharge. The eyes should not be swollen, crusty or pasted shut.
  • There should be no wrinkles or folds in the skin around the legs. Also, check for evidence of injury, such as swelling or bruising.
  • Avoid purchasing a turtle that shows any signs of having diarrhoea, which is an indication that parasites are present.
  • The shell of a healthy Red-Eared Slider is firm and hard. Look for missing scales or evidence of bleeding around the shell.
  • A turtle that feels light may be suffering from malnutrition or have other serious health issues.
  • A healthy Red-Eared Slider should be aware of its surroundings. If it pulls its head into its shell, it should come back out in a few minutes. If possible, watch the turtle at feeding time to ensure it is maintaining a proper diet.

You will learn:

  • How to read your Red-Eared Slider's behaviour
  • The first sign that your Red-Eared Slider is trying to tell you something is wrong
  • What it means if your turtle moves rapidly or flails when you handle it
  • Why your Red-Eared Slider may bite you during feeding or handling
  • How to pack your turtle up for a trip
  • What it means if a Red-Eared Slider opens its mouth and hisses at you
  • Five reasons why you should not let your Red-Eared Slider hibernate
  • Why your Red-Eared Slider withdraws into its shell and what you should do when it does
  • What to do if your Red-Eared Slider goes missing
