๐ŸŒฟ Fast Facts:

๐Ÿž Habitat: Native to the southeastern United States, these turtles call freshwater and brackish water habitats home, from lakes and ponds to streams, rivers, and marshes.

๐Ÿ“ Size: With the potential to grow between 5โ€“8 inches (13โ€“20 cm) long, these sliders make a delightful addition to any aquatic family.

๐Ÿฅ— Diet: From feasting on invertebrates as juveniles to transitioning into omnivorous adults, these sliders enjoy a varied diet, with vegetation making up to 95% of their meals.

๐ŸŒž Behavior: Semi-aquatic by nature, they bask in the sun and build terrestrial nests, showcasing their most active moments during daylight hours. Keep an eye out for them lounging on logs or soaking up rays on riverbanks and pond shores.

๐Ÿฅš Reproduction: Females take the lead here, often laying multiple clutches per year with each containing up to 2.5 eggs.

โ„๏ธ Hibernation: When winter rolls around, these sliders enter a brumation-like state, ensuring their survival during colder months.

โณ Lifespan: With proper care, they can thrive for up to 30 years in the wild and up to 40 in captivity.

๐Ÿค— Personality: Curious and amiable, each slider boasts a unique personality. While they may not enjoy handling and might nip if they feel threatened, they're fascinating companions nonetheless.

๐Ÿ˜ด Sleeping: You'll find them snoozing peacefully on the water's surface or nestled on the bottom near dense vegetation, providing both safety and sustenance.
