So, I've had my turtles for a while and I've began to question whether or not they are RES. The look like all the RES I've ever seen and growing up in VA, specifically the tidewater area, that's a whole bunch. Anyways, they look just like your average RES, but the red area on their "ears" that give them their name isn't as prominent as others. I know that there are other sliders that have red ears, but theirs look fainter than all the others.

Could you post a pic of them? Chance it could be a Cumberland or a Cumberland/ Res Intergrade which would cause the red bar to become less prominent on the head.

Sorry if the pictures are bad, these are the first time I've actually taken pictures of them.

Do the turtles actually have red at all on their heads? The pics aren't the greatest but I can tell by the C yellow marks. Those are Yellow Bellied Sliders. If they have any red at all on the side of their heads. Then they are Yellow Bellied Slider/Red Eared Slider intergrades.

Alright, thanks. I was figuring that for awhile and yes, they have red.
