These cute little modern dinosaurs are Monica and Nala! Adopting a Red Eased Slider is a long-term commitment – many live for over 20 years! They can live indoors in a large tank, but Monica and Nala would really love to find a spot in a pond home to live out their glory days. They will need protection from predators and the cold, as well as a steady diet of turtle food and other snacks to make them happy. Ready to bring one (or both!) home? If so, make an appointment to meet her at!

Nala and Monica are available for adoption at San Diego Humane Society’s San Diego Campus at 5500 Gaines St. To learn more about making her part of your family, please visit or call 619-299-7012.
