How old do slider turtles get. And would a 2 and 1 fouth inch turtle be a jeuvinile or would it still be a baby. We are not sure how long we had him because someone gave her to us. Thank you!

Properly cared for, RES can live 30+ years. The high protein diet many people feed them in captivity unfortunately shortens their life span to 15-20 years.

You can\'t tell how old your turtle is by its size alone. You can only be sure of it\'s age if you know when it was hatched or if the people who sold/gave him to you knew.
