Trachemys is a genus of aquatic turtles belonging to the family Emydidae, commonly referred to as Sliders, comprising 15 species found in North, Centrral, and South America. Considered a diurnal turtle, it feeds mainly in the morning and frequently basks on shore, on logs, or while floating, during the rest of the day. At night, it sleeps lying on the bottom or resting on the surface near brush piles.

The red-eared slider (Trachemys scripta elegans) is a semiaquatic turtle belonging to the family Emydidae. A subspecies of pond slider and native only to the southern United States, it has become established in other places because of pet releases and has become an invasive species in many introduced areas, like California, where it outcompetes the native western pond turtle.

Here you may post messages or questions pertaining to all aspects and issues regarding the keeping, breeding, health, and conservation of Red-eared, Yellow-bellied, and other Sliders.
