Red-eared Sliders were taking advantage of the relatively warm weather and abundant sunshine on this beautiful fall morning. They could be found along the banks and borders of nearly every pond or stream in Carrollton’s Greenbelt Park.

  1. We have red-eared sliders here in our NYC parks, but they are not native as I believe they are in Texas. They’re released captives – or the descendants of released captives. I heard that when Central Park’s Turtle Pond was restored, the Parks Dept. made no distinction between native and non-native wildlife, and restored all the turtles to the pond – a good call, in this particular case, I think.
