She's so cute! Turtles are so cool. I would love to rescue a Red-Eared Slider (you always see people rehoming them once they get big) but I don't think I have the time...they're a lot of work!

What a cutie!My goodness,he/she is sooo tiny compared to my big boy of a turtle!

At that age/size,there is NO sure way to tell what sex it is,thats why I am not even gonna make a guess.The claws/tail/body still have abit of growing to do.

I know... lol.. just wanted to see what people say to later see what he/she turned out to be. So far everybody seems to think that it will be a female... Lets see what happens...

Hmm.. I have a question... do females grow faster than males? or do they grow at the same rate and males stop growing earlier than females? I just know that males are generally smaller than females, but I'm wondering if there are differences in their growth rate.

I dunno...I heard that females grow slowly...but am not positive about that.

I have a male and he is the size of a female!He is definatly male tho and is huge!I know several people with male RES and my Tanjobi is bigger then them.My cousin also has a female and she is huge and Tanjobi is almost as big as her!Kinda weird.

LOL

Then, if it's by growth rate, then this one is male, cause man it's growing fast!!!!

I still have him in about 6 inches of water, but I plan to *hopefully* soon raise the whole aquarium level (55g). I want to build a plataform that goes on top of the aquarium so she has much more water. It's still on the planning phase, though... 8)

Those pictures are incredible!! I will admit - at the moment I don't know a whole lot about turtles, but would some day like to learn more & possible own 1 or 2.

Turtles are one of my obsessions

guilty as charged! I do indeed collect turtle stuff ... but not just "anything turtle" I am not big into sea turtles - so I don't collect much if any of those.

Heck ... I even have a turtle bobble-head!! lol

Thats cool...thats ONE thing Amanda doesn't have!!!!!A turtle bobble head!!!How many thingd do you have?Or do you know???? The ONLY reason I know Amanda has over 300 things, is because my cousin also collects turtle stuff and they wanted to see who has more,they were having a little competition and so they counted all their stuff...Amanda WON by far!

But she is into sea turtles too.She is big on sea turtle restoration (sp?).So she collects sea turtle things as well.

Oh how cute. My Oscar was also the size of a half dollar when I got him. Now he is a monster turtle! We have him in a 75 gallon tank. In the summer he is outside in the pond. We put the pond in just for him!
I will also guess a girl. Oscar is a florida red belly so I don't know much about RES. But Oscars nails are long. Besides she looks like a she!
Good luck with her. Turtles are not the easiest pets. But I do love our Oscar turtle!


Amber - I love the tattoo. You should not be giving me ideas!

mommy to
Tyler - kitty
Oscar - water turtle
Bean - kitty
Frankie - dachshund
Belle - dachshund
Oliver - bunny
Ophelia - bunny
Penelope - bunny
Teddy - bunny -ok I have given up on 4 of a kind and am willing to settle for 2 pairs.
8 fishes - RIP Little Guy and Greta
and Tabatha - October 11, 2006 - rest in peace our sweet angel bunny
