Red-Eared Slider Turtle

Trachemys scripta elegans


Red-eared sliders get their name from the small red slash around their ears. The "slider" part of their name comes from their ability to slide off rocks and logs and into the water quickly. From Wikipedia.


Backyard. The habitat is creek, grasslands, small amount of forest and some marsh like areas. The reason why the creek bank looks so bad is because of really bad flooding on Memorial Day.
