Invasive Species - Red Eared Slider

The Red-Eared Slider is a turtle from the eastern U.S. It has a dark shell, yellow stripes on the neck and legs, and a bright red patch just behind the eye.

As an invasive nonnative species in Oregon, they compete with native turtles for food and habitat, especially nesting sites.

They can spread diseases to which Oregon’s native turtles have no immunity.
