Yellow Bellied Slider Turtle

A Yellow Bellied Slider Turtle, (Trachemys scripta scripta) photographed at the Seaview Wildlife Encounter, Seaview, Isle of Wight, England. In the wild, they are found in the Southeast of United States, from Southeast Virginia to northern Florida and Texas and also in Central America. Sliders get their name from their habit of sliding into the water from a rock or pond edge. They are semi-aquatic freshwater turtles and live in ponds, streams, rivers, lakes and swamps.
