Yellow-bellied slider turtles

Trachemys scripta scripta

Description:

Yellow Bellied Sliders are mostly aquatic and love to bask in the sun. They bask frequently, and often pile on top of each other for the highest possible sunning position. Yellow Bellied Sliders are omnivorous, eating mostly greens, insects, fish, mollusks etc. Water plants are a favorite food and a favorite hang out. They can be found in just about any permanent body of water in the Southeast. Sliders are large turtles reaching 10 inches in length; females get quite a bit bigger than males. They make good pets.

Habitat:

There was a large group of yellow-bellied sliders spotted along the banks and in the clear springs of Magnolia Springs State Park in Millen, Georgia.
