Don’t let your back garden go unused. Grow your own vegetables and be comforted by the knowledge that they’re free of pesticides! While you’re at it, you can build a safe environment for your red-eared sliders to take a stroll and munch on some of the greens.

Dandelion leaves.

Red-eared sliders require a good dose of sunshine and a balanced meal to prevent metabolic bone disease. Calcium-rich greens such as Dandelion leaves are a must-have in the garden. Give them an occasional treat in the form of crickets or aquatic fishes, such as mollies, for protein.
