can you get a pic? Does it have webbed feet? Did you buy it or find it somewhere? Does it have any color on it's head (red ears or just yellow markings)? If it was at a store, what did they tell you it was? What kind of setup did they have it in?

If you want, you can email me the pic and I'll post it. I can't believe that the pet store would sell something and not know what it is :roll: What kind of setup did they have it in? I'm thinking it's some kind of cooter or slider.

Here's a link with photos for aquatic turts. See if you can figure out what you have http://www.turtlefarms.com/hatchling.htm

POSTING A PICTURE:
You can put a picture here like this:

1. You need to have your pictures in an on-line album like www.photobucket.com , which I use.
2. Under your picture there are three entries, the picture's url, the url for use on message boards with "IMG" in caps, and one for "Blogs"
Image

3. Copy the plain "Url" (the first url in the picture)

4. On the message board you need to click on the "Img" button just above the square where you put your message
Image

5. Paste the url from the picture and then click on the "Img" button again, when you click on the button the first time, the button will look like this "Img*", that is so you remember to click on it again to complete the picture posting.

I hope that helps.
:D

cooters and sliders are pretty similar as far as needs go. They do get considerably larger than sliders tho. I think they max out around 16 inches. Read the stickys on the site for setup and care info.
