Rio Grande Turtles are a more ornate species variation of the Red Ear Slider. They require the same care and have the same habits, but they tend to have more detailed and vibrant markings. Also, their colorations and pigments tend to stay brighter as they age. These are awesome turtles with great personalities and very beautiful markings. Rio Grande Turtles love to bask and will spend most of their time doing so. It’s important that you provide them with some nice places where they can bask and warm themselves.
