Animal ID: 16-05-14-00444red eared slider (male)

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Senior

    25 yr. old red eared slider. I've had Stripes since he was a tiny baby. He needs to be given a larger environment within which to thrive. He has outgrown his 40 gal tank. He is friendly. He has only known living in his tank. I care about him...that's why I've had him this long. I recently had surgery and taking care of cleaning his tank and changing the filter and then refilling his tank has become somewhat arduous. Many folks have said just take him to a pond and let him go. I cannot do that. He is used to being fed and talked to. I have 4 cats who often keep him company. He's a good boy and deserves a great new home. I'd love ... (Read More)him to have a larger area in which to move around. It will be hard to give him up....but the time has come to do so. (Less)

Reptile/Amphibian    Age: Adult

    Hello, I have two turtles named Aki and Speedy. Speedy is 7 years old and Aki is about 1-2 years old. They are both males. I am now a college students, and I am unable to take proper care of them now. The two turtles does not get along well due to Speedy being territorial to other turtles. Both turtles are extremely friendly with people. Speedy is also sort of trained to where when you are tapping on the floor, Speedy will run towards you. The $30 each is an adoption fee so I know that the person taking them in will take proper care of them and for the food/treats that will be provided. Please email me or text me to notify me that you are ... (Read More)interested and when you would be free so I would be able to call you to schedule when we would be able to meet up. (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting Reptiles & More in Illinois
    Reptiles & More can make good pets in Illinois if they match your IifestyIe. Reptiles are interesting animals. Many types of reptiles and amphibians are kept as exotic pets. Snakes, turtles, iguanas, and frogs are popular examples. Keeping a reptile as a pet is a tremendous responsibility. Many reptile owners discover that owning a reptile is not as rewarding as they had hoped. Reptiles do not bond with people the way mammals can, and are sometimes neglected for that reason. Also, many people purchase young, small reptiles without being aware of or prepared for their eventual adult size. For example, Burmese Pythons are often bought as pets when they are about two feet long. However, many do not realize that Burmese Pythons are among the largest snakes in the world, with adults averaging 23 feet in length and weighing hundreds of pounds! There is now an established invasive population of Burmese Pythons in Florida due to pet owners releasing the snakes into the wild. Scientists believe these huge snakes will keep spreading out and will one day inhabit one third of the United States! Some owners are not prepared for the long lifespan of a pet reptile. Some species of turtles are known for their extreme longevity. Iguanas can grow to be six feet long and then live for 20 years. Sadly, many captive reptiles suffer from dehydration and kidney problems, poor nutrition, and all other manner of neglect. A person who is truly ready to commit to a reptile pet can alleviate some suffering by adopting an animal rather than purchasing new.
