  1. They climb anything around to bask in the sun. I have a couple of rescued red ear sliders (non native) and they love to bask on a stone platform.

    1. Mary, being a Master Gardener, knows all too much about invasive plants & animals, but it seems a red-eared slider is a critter from us that’s invasive for you!

      Apparently they out-compete all other small turtles. Keep an eye on ’em … they’re up to no good!


      1. Yes, Ed. They are “imported” for the aquarium trade. Probably bred in the far east. They are cute when they are 1 to 2″ and in my concrete pond grow to 1′ or more. I have an aquaria group and when someone doesnt want them I take them in and let them live their lives out. Better than being dumped in local lakes.
