For better or worse, pet stores here in Amman have suddenly started to carry semi-aquatic turtles. We saw some RES babies at the place we had our tank built and couldn't resist, so here's "Taxi" -- named after the bumpy ride home.

oh my gosh - how cute is Taxi... :)

I have to say, baby RES are sooooo cute...I love his/her beautiful green color.

It's so interesting to see all the different shades and patterns res turtle shells are - like their own fingerprint. Very cool!!

sassygirl: Agreed! Too bad they don't keep that coloring... not that the adults aren't great too. :)

Re: the other turts -- we've narrowed it down but we're not exactly sure. Check out our thread in this forum (Photo Gallery) from last week called "Help! Identify us!"

We gave him more water today. We wanted to make sure he was healthy and smart enough not to drown first... (As for the two non-RES, the care guide we're using--assuming they are some kind of pond turtle--recommends shallow water.)
