My Red Eared Slider cost me $16-18 (cant quite remember). It varies from state to state. I've seen some at $20 and some at $15 it all depends on where you live and what store you go to but I would say on average $15-20. Hope I helped.

Hmmm... sell the ones you have to go buy more? Im sorry if i come as a ***** when i say how dumb that sounds to me but whatever. Is there any way you could bring the ones you have? I know in Newfoundland it is extremely hard to find a good forever home for RES turtles. I imgaine anywhere you look in classifieds you'll find someone getting rid of theirs if you wanted to look into saving one instead of supplying the pet trade by buying babies in America. Both of my turtles came from people who just didnt want to take care of them anymore so that's why i feel bitter on the subject, excuse me.

I don't think you can bring certain animals into the States (and Canada) I think that's way he has to sell them.
