Turtle Twosome Need New Homes and Might Win Race to Your Heart

Sure, the Animal Welfare Leagues latest adoptees Cola and Princess Peach enjoy each other’s company, but they don’t need to be adopted together.

Cola, a six-year-old yellow-bellied slider, and Princess Peach, a seven-year-old red-bellied slider, would reportedly be happy to go to their new homes individually, or, if someone is interested, together.

“Princess Peach and Cola are pets who have always lived their lives indoors, and are looking for indoor living in their new homes too,” AWLA spokesperson Gina Hardter told ALXnow. “Turtles like Cola and Princess Peach can live 20 to 30 years when well-cared for.”

Hardter said that the best environment for the turtles is a 90 gallon tank, which give them space to swim as well as a climbing area to bask in the light of a heat source.

If you’re looking for more information on turtles and how to bring one into your home, contact [email protected]. To schedule an appointment to meet with either of these turtles, visit AlexandriaAnimals.org/Adopt-By-Appointment.
