    Yellow Belly Slider,scientific name,

    Trachemys scripta scripta

    Male 5 to 8" long Female 8" to 13" long

    DIET

    Yellow bellied sliders are omnivorous, eating aquatic plants, fish, insects and carrion, although adult females are largely herbivorous and young and adult males are more carnivorous.

    TEMPERATURE RANGE (°F)

    Air Temperature: Low to Mid 80's

    Basking Temperature: High 80's to Low 90's

    Water Temperature: Mid 70's

    HABITAT

    These turtles thrive in a variety of freshwater habitats including lakes, ponds, streams and rivers.

    DISTRIBUTION

    south eastern Virginia to northern Florida

    BEGINNER TURTLE

    Yes

    CAPTIVE HABITAT

    use an aquarium no smaller than 15 gallons for HATCHLINGS. 1 adult YBS should be kept in a 60gallon aquarium and up. Add an additional 20 gallons per turtle. Use a good filtration system, preferably an external canister filter. These turtles like to bask, so provide a fair sized basking spot. I would also recommend a submersible heater with the temperature adjusted to 75 to 80 degrees.
    RECOMMENDED ENCLOSURE

    Recommended size for a single adult Yellow Bellied slider - 60 Gallons. For a Trio, definently 150gallons and up.

    CAPTIVE DIET

    In captivity, you can use small feeder fish as well as commercially bred insects such as meal worms, wax worms and crickets as treats. Commercial turtle food and chopped vegetables round out a nutritionally complete diet along with the treats.

    COMMUNITY HABITAT

    Red Eared Sliders, Cooters, maps, and painted turtles work well together.

    OTHER INFORMATION

    Most are very sociable and those that are shy tend to lose that shyness rather quickly
