We get in Red Eared Sliders constantly mainly because most people don’t really know what it takes to care for these animals. These turtle have a lifespan of about 30 years! That’s quite a long time for a pet, but unfortunately many people don’t know that. Red eared sliders get their name from the bright red spots on the sides of their head. They are omnivores and they will eat almost anything. In captivity they can be fed turtle pellets as well as an assortment of insects.

In this video we have one of our albino California Kingsnakes shedding its skin. When snakes they actually shed their entire body including their eyes. If it a good shed it will come out in one clean piece. Kingsnakes can eat many different animals such as rodents, lizards, and snakes. They are most well known for being able to eat Rattlesnakes.
