Red Eared Slider Question
Hi, I live in DFW Texas and this morning I found a red eared slider, in the middle of street on the way back from taking my son to school. It was not injured in any way.
I put it in my dog's wading pool, on a slope so it can either be dry or in the water. I gave it some raw chicken liver and some chard.
My question is, how do these animals over winter?
If we keep it in our backyard will it be okay?
My garden is raised, enclosed and fenced so it can't get to it.
I just don't want to release it, because I do not want it to get run over.
