red ear slider... i have no idea what to do
i went to an old freinds house. i havent talked to her in 4 years. well she had a large red ear slider in a FIVE gallon plastic tank. i asked her about it and she said she has had it since it was a baby. she said they caught it at a relitives pond. and she cannot care for it anymore. she asked me if i wanted it (i didnt) but i said yes anyway. he coudnt even turn around in that tank and it stank to high heaven.
i dont want to keep this guy! can i release him back into a pond after two years or will he surely die. right now he is in about a 20 gallon long tank (still too small for him) setting outside in the shade. its got water on half, and a concrete block on the other half so he can get out of the water. i have red ear slider food, and thats what i am doing for him now.
i mainly wanted to know if i can go put him back into a pond
he is about a foot long, and about that wide too. so hes a big boy. basically stayed laying sideways in that 5 gal tank she had him in,.
