    Default Red Ear Sliders


    0 Not allowed!
    Hello,

    I have a couple of red ear sliders...they are 2-3 years old...looking on the net they both seem to be males (both have long tails and long claws)...yet for some reason they seem to be doing "the" dance thingie...where one puts his hands on the others face and "shivers"...I thought that was only when they are courting...thus now I am totally confused...sometimes they seem to fight...and at other times one mounts the other...



    thanks...

    He has found the closest thing to a female RES. Many animals do things like this when no individuals of the other sex are around.

    They lay eggs in the dirt near the water. Very smart (as well as lucky and quick) turtles will lay them in alligator nest mounds. Perfect environment and WELL protected.

    a little off topic...but do red ear sliders lay eggs in the ground aswell like every other turtle?? this sounds like a dumb question??? so would you have to have dirt in there???


    but they could just be doing that for fun or something......i have seen 2 male or 2 female angels swim together like they are a pair.....maybe they are just...best friends.....lol.

    as far as i have read...they do lay eggs in the ground (for the eggs to hatch/live that is)...

    i guess they could be friends...

    know of anybody who has an extra female???
