Cumberland Sliders (Trachemys scripta troostii)

TYPE: Sliders   

BASIC INFORMATION:

Cumberland Sliders are a rare cousin of the Red Eared Slider, found only in the upper Cumberland and Tennessee rivers in Virginia, Kentucky and Northern Alabama. Lighter and more yellow in color than most Red Eared Sliders, and lacking the "red ear" Cumberland Sliders are similar in husbandry requirements, and in active personalities. Their care and description are essentially the same as the Red Eared Slider and follows:

The most common turtle available the world over, Red Eared Sliders make excellent starter turtles, and adults will brighten up outdoor ponds in nearly all US temperature zones. They do well in tanks, water and land setups, and when kept with most other species.

They bask frequently, and will even pile on top of each other for the best sunning position. In community set ups, it's often the red ears example that quickens other species taming down. Red ears are omnivorous, eating pellets, most greens, insects, fish, mollusks etc.
