There are tons of videos on YouTube featuring pet red ear slider turtles and quite hard to find one that’s educational (even harder still to find a real documentary on RES turtles!). So when I stumbled on this video, I knew I just had to share it.

Enjoy the video!

Here’s the official description of the video:
