Yellow-bellied Slider

Other name: Common Slider; Pond Slider

Scientific name: Trachemys scripta scripta

Range/Habitat: These sliders are a freshwater species and highly adaptable. They are a U. S. native found in the Mississippi river system regions of the southwest. Feral populations have been established throughout the U.S. as a result of owners releasing their unwanted pets. In some locations the release turtles have hybridized with other turtles. This has resulted restrictions place on having these turtles as pets. Check with your local regulatory authority (usually state Fish and Game Department) on Common Slider ownership before acquiring one as a pet.
