Getting Started with Red-Eared Slider

Having all of the supplies you need to keep your red-eared slider comfortable and healthy is one of the most important aspects of being a turtle owner. The following is a list of some suggested items:

  • Cage (must be water-tight and have space for both a water area and a land area)
  • Heat Source (basking light and possibly a water heater)
  • Lighting (UVB light)
  • Substrate
  • Food (commercial turtle food; crickets; vegetable matter)
  • Calcium supplement
