    Hi,
    I'm pretty new here, so I have no idea if anyones seen this yet and posted it, but I found this tonight. I'm buying some of them too!

    RED EARED SLIDER TURTLE ORDER WEBSITE

    They're really cute, and I'm going to order them for my boys! I think they'd really like them!

    I'm curious, how in the world do they get their turtles, "Samonella free"? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img] I'd like to know, I'll never forget when I got samonella from my turtle! And I don
    t want to get it again from my alligator lizard or my gopher snake...

    A WORD OF WARNING: IT IS ILLEGAL TO POSESS A TURTLE, TORTISE, OR OTHER CHELONID UNDER 4 INCHES IN LENGTH. Many places still sell them, including that website, but it is against the law. The only way to posess them legally is for certified breeders or people with educational permits. It is technically illegal to sell them at that size, too. They have to be at least " Salmanella-free" I do not believe is possible, this is just a sales quirk... Find a better pet like a hamster, rabbit, leopard gecko, cornsake, etc. Don't forget to RESEARCH! Just my $0.02.
    Good LUCK!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img] [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/alien.gif[/img]

    P.S. This was not meant to be offensive, just informative.

    You are correct, lithopsman. It is illegal, unless you are buying them for educational purposes. All herps/most animals have some level of salmonella for digestion (or was that e.coli?). my 2centz [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/smile.gif[/img]

    AWWWWWWW MAN,
    You guys take the fun out of it!!! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img].

    I've been checking it out, and they can't be Salmonella free (it's impossible i believe), but if you do remember to sanitize your hands after touching them (kinda like when you touch raw meat) you will reduce your chances drastically.

    And, uh, would you believe it if I told you it WAS for educational purposes?? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img]

    Thanks for the concern all, and I'm still researching it a bit more before I make any formal decisions on the matter!

    Ok, if your turtle lays eggs, you have to destroy the eggs or give them to the local ZOO. Wenny, giving baby turtles to your kids as "educational pets" is not a legitamite educational purpose. You have to obtain permits to be considered "educational". Good luck!
