紅耳龜是全球寵物市場上最常見的淡水龜,常被野放變成入侵物種與各地原生物種爭奪資源。美國加州有大學於一個植物園研究牠們對原生物種的影響,把園內九成的紅耳龜移除後,發現一年後原生的石斑龜活動時間及體重都有明顯增長。

Red-eared sliders are the most common freshwater turtle in global pet trade; they are often released to the wild and became invasive species, competing with other native species. a university in California removed 90% of the red-eared sliders in an arboretum, and in just a year time, they observed the native western pond turtles spent more time basking in the sun and their body weight is increasing as well.
