Red-Eared Slider

Trachemys scripta elegans

Notes:

Meet my pet turtle, Kivi. The perks about Kivi is that he likes to bite clothing and he just LOVES to run. And boy is he fast. Hope you guys from Project Noah like him!

I thought red-eared slider is a type of terrapin?

Thank you! Sorry, for some reason I've actually been confusing these two species for a long time. Half of my friends know him as a terrapin, and the other half know him as a Red-Eared Slider. Thanks!
