Do you have pics of the plastron? Very cool pattern on the head.

Plastron are normal just like the red ear sliders, nothing special. Except that it's more yellow-ish. Haha yeah I agree :)

If there is a lack of patterns on the plastron, I would lean towards Cumberland. RES hatchlings have very nice designs on there.

There's no lack of patterns on the plastron though o_o could it be an intergrade ?

Intergrade is a possibility, depending on where they turtle came from.

This is more or less typical of RES:

A normal res compared to him

His plastron is slightly more yellowish, that's him sticking his head out.

Do cumberlands have any other special features other than yellow ear ?

Yours is very cool!! I'm guessing it's an intergrade of ybs with res! I used to have one but it died of RI. :(
