I am from the UK and I was wondering if I can get terrapins. i have looked on all the websites of close by pet stores and none of them know where to get them from.

    I made some minor wording changes to your question. As originally written it was a shopping question which generally don't work well on StackExchange sites. The basic premise remains the same, but now it is a better fit for the site. See help asking for more details – James Jenkins May 17 '18 at 14:40
  • an other common name is red-eared slider so if you ask the petshops for this you might find it.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red-eared_slider – trond hansen May 17 '18 at 18:45

It looks like this is banned in the Uk and EU,so it is no legal way to get this type of turtle in a pet shop,and it is not legal to breed red eared terrapins https://www.petgazette.biz/11350-red-eared-sliders-banned-uk/

I have found out that there are many species which you can purchase legally in the UK, it was just the pet stores around where I live do not have them.
