Heterozygous: Normal looking turtles that carry the gene for albinism.
Double Hets: The parents were different tyes of albino, they carry 2 different sets of genes for albinism. This increases the chance of successfully hatchling an albino turtle from 25%, up to 66%. They will be compatible with the two most common forms of albinism, again greatly increasing your chances of hatching your own albino turtles.
Countless requests for juvenile Red Eared Sliders have inspired us to make this species available in the highest quality possible. We hatch & hand raise Red Ears to pond size for our customers all the time – now we’re making juveniles and yearlings available at a most affordable price – remember, the shipping charge is the same for 1 to 6 of all our small sized turtles. (mix and match as you like : )
The most common turtle available the world over, Red Eared Sliders make excellent starter turtles, and adults will brighten up outdoor ponds in nearly all US temperature zones. They do well in tanks, water and land setups, and when kept with most other species.
They bask frequently, and will even pile on top of each other for the best sunning position. In community set ups, it’s often the red ears example that quicken other species taming down. Red ears are omnivorous, eating pellets, most greens, insects, fish, mollusks etc.
