Of all the creatures I find turtles to be the most fascinating ones . 💕
These cute red-eared sliders , are a semiaquatic turtle. It is the most popular pet turtle in the United States and in the rest of the world. It has therefore become the most commonly traded turtle in the world. It is native to the southern United States and northern Mexico, but has become established in other places because of pet releases, and has become an invasive species in many areas, where it outcompetes native species. The red-eared slider is included in the list of the world's 100 most invasive species . Please do NOT release these into the wild after being kept as pets .
