Does a yellow-bellied slider turtle make a good pet?


Answer by  savetheunlikely (82)

Usually, yes. They are strong, and very pleasant to look at. They last a very long time - up to 40 years. They are relatively simple and easy to take care of, however, it's important to remember that they will need a very large tank to live in. 75 gallons or larger is best.

Yes. They are easy to maintain, inexpensive, and require the basics for care. You need to provide them with a warm sunny area with rocks as they bask quite often.

Yellow bellied slider turtles require a lot of space. It is recommended that they are kept in an aquarium no smaller than 60 gallons for adults.

No! turtle cannot make a good pet because they carry salmonella. You cannot expect a reflection of love from turtle, as a love forward turtle will always remain one sided.

Turtles are great pets to look at, but not to play with. They can be dangerous for young children because they carry salmonella

Normally any type of turtle will never act as good pet because a love towards a turtle will always remain one sided and you can never expect a reflection of love from the turtle.
