So Kingler is my F RES who is still alive. I had a nother turtle, Killer( I was like 7 when I named him) who I bought at the same time. He was killed a couple years ago after a Racoon Attack. So I never founf out what type of turtle he was, so give me some help.

Kingler on the Right, Killer on the left.

Hm...he doesn't look exactly like my YBS. Then again, mine is only about 2 inches. Do you have any pictures of his plastron?

I was cleaning the water so it was kinda low, yet with one arm, Killer still made it up.

cumberlands are very close to RES. they have a yellow or orange stripe instead of red.

Wow, that's quite close. But Killer also quite resembled a RES. So probably a cross of a Cumberland/RES.

Is that Rare?

Ok, well I guess I'll never find out the Mysterey of the late Killer. But I at least narrowed it down.
