All about Kiwi
Animal ID: 51681116

Kiwi is a female Red Eared Slider reptile.

Hey there! I'm Kiwi! I'm a red-eared slider and I need a spacious tank to swim around in! When I am fully grown, I can be as big as 12 inches - so please be aware of that. The rule of thumb is for every inch of my shell, I will need at least 10 gallons of water - since my shell is about 8 inches long right now, I'll need a tank that's at least 80 gallons! Similar to most turtles, I can live for a very long time (upwards of 30 years) so please be prepared for the commitment. I am an amazing swimmer, even for turtles! I would love if my future family could provide me with not only plenty of swimming space but also various rocks, foliage (live or plastic) and other caves or decor that I can explore. Although I am primarily an aquatic species of turtle, I do still require adequate UVB light in order to properly thrive. A basking platform where I can get completely dry and warm is a must for me! As you can tell, I have some special care requirements so please make sure you have done your research! Anyways, that's all there is to know - so please contact CHS today!
