Special Needs Yellow Bellied Slider

Jabu has one of the most bizarre shell shapes we've seen. The awkward ups and downs add some additional difficulty when it comes to swimming and basking. For these reasons, we require this turtle has extra deep water (to ensure that, in the case of flipping upside down, there's plenty of water to flip rightside up). Additionally, a large and stable basking spot with a gradual slope will make basking much easier! Even with these issues, our lovely yellow bellied has a classic slider attitude and loves food.


Based on current size, an aquarium, tub, trough or similar enclosure should be 50 gallons or more with a nicely sized basking area, heating and UVB.
