    Hi! I adopted a rescued red eared slider 6 years ago, and it is believed that she is 20 years old now. 2 months ago, she developed a whit fame over her eyes. I visited my local vet, but he had no clue what the issue could be, because she has clean water, and a well-balanced diet. Do you guys...

    My cousin is planning to purchase a red-eared slider hatching. Now, in order to keep algae growth in check, he wants to get an algae eating fish that has a fairly good chance of surviving if it's made to share a large tank (300 gallons or so) with a slider. Previous turtle forums I've browsed...

I have 3 female turtles, 2 red eared sliders that are over 30 years old and have never laid an egg before (according to previous owner, and not in the 15 years I have had them) and a florida cooter. This morning I found a white egg...

    So I have a RES and she looks very ill. Her head is bobbing at times, she does not want to bask or eat, she stays in the water not wanting to move, and she opens and closes her mouth at times. I think she has RI but there is also the fact that she has this weird flotiss like object attached to...

I think it's female - looking at comparison photos, the claws and tail look shorter rather than longer. Its carapace is about 20cm/8in long, but that's an approximation...
