Status and distribution in Luxembourg
The data in the Recorder database provide no differentiation between the red-eared slider and the yellow-bellied slider.
A yellow-bellied slider has, for example, been observed in the river Chiers on the northern edge of the nature conservation area Dreckwiss (21/07/2015).
Trachemys scripta scripta, the yellow-bellied slider, is a land and water turtle that can be found in a wide variety of habitats, including slow-moving rivers, floodplain swamps, marshes, seasonal wetlands and permanent ponds. The turtle is native to the south-eastern United States, occurring naturally from Florida to south-eastern Virginia. It is popular as a pet and has been introduced to many parts of the world primarily through escape or deliberate release.
