Meet Speedy and Tucker! Speedy and Tucker are red-eared sliders. Red-eared sliders are native to the southern United States. One of these turtles is Tucker and the other is Speedy, but I don’t know which is which. They are both females that live at Heckrodt Wetland Reserve. In the picture above you can see the red line on the side of her head, which is where they get their name from. They are called sliders because they are very shy, and when they are sitting on a rock or a log and people come by, they will quickly slide into the water.
