Meet Shelly!! (case #224860)
Shelly, a red-eared slider, can make a terrific pet, providing that you’ve done your research on turtle care. Knowing how to care for your turtle appropriately is the key to lifelong happiness. This species of turtle is a semi-aquatic turtle that requires a specific tank with fresh water, plants, basking spots, and appropriate space.
A red-eared slider might seem like a pet that is easy to take care of—and you’re partially correct. But every pet takes commitment, which includes keeping up with tank maintenance, turtle health, and replenishing supplies. Your turtle’s habitat is the most important place in the world—their sanctuary. So, it would be best if you never tried to cheap out on supplies or skip crucial needs. A healthy red-eared slider can live up to 30 years so it's essential to prepare mentally for the commitment.
Adopters must provide their own enclosure and accessories.
