RED-EARED TURTLE

TRACHEMYS SCRIPTA ELEGANS

The Red-eared Turtle is the most common fresh water turtle in the world. It is easily identified with it's red marking on the ears.

The female Red-eared Turtle grows to approximately 25cm long in the shell, and males 15 - 18cm.

Like the male River Cooter, the male Red-eared Turtles have extremely long claws on their front feet and a much larger tail in relation to the females.

The Red-eared Turtle is easy to keep and can be hand fed.

When your Red-eared Turtle grows too large for your tank he will usually adapt easily to pond living.
