Hey, are you from the central texas area also? Im located in Temple and this place you gave the link too is right down the road in Cove. Thats about a 15 min drive. Thanks for the link...not many tortoise/turtles too chose from though. He looks like he sells lots of snakes though.

PIA--- I find your post...rather interesting to say the least!! :) I think that you should give your turtle some time before labeling them "gay".

^^^^^STRAYKINGFISHER is right...as usual....and even though they are aquatic they lay their eggs on land in dirt. So they wouldn't be trying to lay eggs underwater even if she was of sexual maturity.

Typically the female will be the larger one.......the male will be smaller and have a longer tail. But that also all depends on what breed it is. Some you can tell by the color of the eyes in the springtime, others how wide the v-shaped part of the bottom rear shell is. Hope this helps.

Best bet in your situation is going to make sure it is eating well, and keep its water clean as possible. The chlorine in the water should be enough to keep an infection out. Good luck and keep us updated!

How exactly did the baby turtle get bitten? To answer your question, the shell will more than likely heal up, now I've seen some wild caught turtles that had parts of their shell that was scared. The shell might not ever grow back too its original shape or thickness, but it will heal enough to prote...
