Die Rotwangen-Schmuckschildkröte (Trachemys scripta elegans) (Wied-Neuwied, 1839)

The Red-Eared Slider (Trachemys scripta elegans) (Wied-Neuwied, 1839)



Abstract

Red-eared sliders are frequently kept under suboptimal conditions, where even the legally obligatory minimum keeping conditions and regulations are not fulfilled. I present the regulations for keeping Trachemys scripta elegans in Switzerland, the European Union (in general), and Austria and Germany (in particular) and I give as an example how they can be kept in outdoor or/and indoor enclosures. Information about feeding, keeping, group sizes, separation of the sexes and overwintering are given. Many red-eared sliders are found in animal welfare enclosures of turtle friends and their organizations, so it is questionable whether one should breed them or perhaps better to help to find homes for the surplus specimens. But for those who want to breed, the article gives additionally information about incubation and raising hatchlings.

Key words
