All about Shelly
Animal ID: 51198956

Shelly is a 5 years, 2 months old female Yellowbelly Slider reptile.

Age: 5 years
Weight: 0.78kg (1.7lbs)

Hi there, my name is Shelly! In the wild, turtles like me can be found in ponds, lakes, rivers - just about any slow-flowing fresh water body. When my wild cousins aren't swimming around, we love to sit on rocks or logs and sunbathe. If you bring me home, I'd love a similar setup. I'll need a tank that's large enough to offer me room to swim and hold a basking platform for me to take a stroll and then catch some rays under my UVB light and heat lamp . The general rule of thumb for my tank size is 10 gallons of water per inch of my adult shell length.
Turtles like me can live up to 40 years with appropriate care. That means nutritious food, a large, warm, clean tank, and enrichment opportunities so I don't get bored. We are not a pet to take home until you've done your research, but when you're ready, you'll find I'm an amazing little pet. If you think you have room in your home and heart for a turtle friend, come by the shelter today!
