Re: Water garden and red eared sliders

Do you live where these turtles are native or indigenous?

-- good idea to read section on Impact of Introduction --

If environmentally suitable, I suppose an outdoor enclosure like the one they have at my local wildlife refuge for box turtles might work....
Learning never ends because we can share what we've learned. And in sharing our collective experiences, we gain deeper understanding of what we learned.

Re: Water garden and red eared sliders

I have a 100 gallon outdoor water garden with native plants and 5 Koi. Over the years we have placed many native turtles in there that we have come across (in the road, golf course, etc.) but they never stayed. I have several frogs that make it their home though.
