Nicaraguan Slider

Trachemys emolli


The lakes and watery areas of Nicaragua and Costa Rica


This is my Nicaraguan Slider Juan. I have this turtle since he was a little bigger than a quarter. After a year he is as big as my adult Midland Painted. These turtles can get large, up to 15". They grow extremely fast in their first two years.
