    Here's some pics and a link to a mini-movie of my itty bitty red ear slider...movie isn't much, and it's tiny...just her looking at the cam:

    Ok, had to edit, copy and use that link...for some reason it wouldn't create a link of it.

    I really should name her and stop just calling her turtle. She's maybe an inch big and steadily growing...just can't dive still.

    Thanks guys. I was thinking of names for ages, but for some reason only came up with male turtle names. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]


    Cool,

    It's suggested 10 gallons per inch of turtle. That's tip to tail of the shell. So if this little girl gets to be full grown, she'll need a 120 gallon tank to herself or bigger. Life span is a huge chunk of time though. Takes I believe 4-7 years to get to be the requisite purchasing size of 4".

    My parents used to live in Springfield, MO and I miss seeing all those three-toed box turtles running around..

    Cheers,

    PS if you are a fan of Japanese monster movies, how about "Gamera."
