Nicaraguan Ornate Slider: Trachemys emoli

Category: Sliders

Description

Possibly the most durable of all turtles, Nicaraguan Ornate Sliders are pretty - but are strong survivors at all costs...They have a colorful mix of greens, yellows and black circular patterns, and still they are the turtle equivalent of armored tanks...

An excellent starter/first turtle, they're fine all by themselves - or are perfectly at home in a community tank with most other similar sized species. We start our's out on pellets and greens - but they will also take fish, meat & worms, and they learn to eat from your hand very quickly.

In nature, Nicaraguan Ornate Sliders come from a very limited range of Costa Rica and Nicaragua - where not surprisingly, they share the water with Lake Nicaragua Sharks. There, it's their pretty shell that gets them in trouble - as they are collected both for their meat and their brightly colored shells - famous for their decorative circular patterns...

As adults they make fine warmer pond turtles - giving even the biggest raccoon reason to move on... As hatchlings and adults, these are one pretty - and one tough turtle . . . and one that makes turtle keeping very easy.
