Baby yellow belly sliders found in our yard
Yellow Bellied Sliders
We recently found a couple yellow belly sliders in our garden. It seems that we must have disturbed their nest. My kids would like to keep them as a pet until they grow big enough to release them. Are there any concerns with taking a turtle found in the wild as a pet? Also, what kind of accommodations should I prepare for this type of turtle(shelter, food, sun, water)?
