Question:
What animal would eat a red eared pond slider? Ours disappeared from its pool and we do not think it could escape.


Replies:
Even though turtles generally have few serious predators, dogs or coyotes can sometimes manage to crack the shell and kill them. The only other possibility I can think of around a home is human - theft or accident.
