Wilbur E. Lucas Elementary Welcomes Flash, the Turtle Thumbnail Image

Wilbur E. Lucas Elementary Welcomes Flash, the Turtle

On January 17, a Red-Eared Slider turtle was seen walking through the bus loading zone. The turtle was caught and placed in the school patio to become one of our newest pets. This type of turtle is the most popular pet turtle in the United States. It is native to the southern United States and northern Mexico. A special turtle habitat was built and a name contest was held last week. Our Red-Eared Slider is named Flash. Red-Eared Sliders get their name from the small red stripe around their ears. The "slider" in their name comes from their ability to slide off rocks and logs and into the water quickly. Flash is unable to regulate this body temperature independently; he is completely dependent on the temperature of the environment. For this reason, Flash likes to sunbathe frequently to warm himself and maintain his body temperature. Flash’s shell is oval and is mostly dark green. His head, legs, and tail are green with fine, irregular, yellow lines. This whole shell is covered in stripes and markings that help him in camouflage himself. He has webbed feet help him to swim. A large pond was built in Flash’s habitat. He swims around and leaves the water easily Flash likes climbing onto rocks so he can warm up in the sun. Flash likes to eat aquatic plants, minnows and insects because he is an omnivore. Omnivores eat plants and animals. Red Eared Sliders do not hibernate, but actually brumate. When he brumates, Flash enters a sleep-like state. During this time he does not eat, remains nearly motionless, and breathes very slowly. We are happy that Flash has become the newest member of the Lucas Elementary Family. Please visit Flash's Turtle Habitat at any time.
