well red ear sliders cant usually mate untill there matured females will be about 5 years old before they can mate and males can be old enough at 3. sometimes it takes years before they mate.

your female sliders need to be 5yrs. old to be sexually mature and males must be 3. If and when they do have babies the female needs to be placed in a box with dirt or sand and she will lay her eggs you cn find more info on this website good luck =) manda-->***
