Alice is an adult female Red Eared Slider who was shot in the head. A man was teaching his boy to shoot a pellet gun...by shooting turtles in a pond. :( Alice was the unlucky target. She has healed well, but lost sight in both eyes. She gets around fine so long as her enclosure stays mostly the same. She eats by gathering food around the edges of her tank, or by waiting for it to sink to the bottom.
*She is a large slider and will need a tank that’s wide and deep. She would not be able to turn around in most glass tanks. A stock tank or well-protected outdoor pond is preferred.Interested in Adopting
