I\'ve had my turtle for about 4 months and I\'m guessing she\'s about 5 or 6 months old. She was found in our drive way and I decided to adopt her. I\'m guesstimating she\'s about two inches big. I was just wondering how fast the turtles growing rate is. Does anyone know?

Thx
Carol

It just depends on the turtle like humans. I think I read about an inch a year. I hope you have researched a proper set-up. They are a big responsibility and can be an expense as well. Good luck!

It\'s probly a res.Also growth depends on climate feeding and other natural factors.

Is it typical for baby RESs to grow quickly? For example, my ToTo is just under a year old, he was a tad bigger than a quarter when I got him, he\'s now approx. 4-5\". Does this sound like normal growth??

My RES is only about 7 months old and it\'s already between 5\" and 5 1/2\". I don\'t know if that\'s a normal growth rate, but he\'s perfectly healthy. I guess it just depends on the turtle, how much it\'s fed, etc.
