Hi, I have a couple of questions,
1.) How old are RES when they start mating?
2.) Are there different color RES? I have a dark green RES and a light green RES. Like a pastel green. Or are they all light green when they are small? Thanks Becky

I belive Males are sexually mature at about 5 or 6 years, and females later, or the other way around. RES like any other animals have variations among the same species, but older turtles usually have a darker shell, an adult RES would have a really dark shell, I\'ve seen some almost black.

Hi Jude, Thanks for answering my questions. My turtles are still real small. We got my first RES when pet stores sold them real small. They don\'t sell them under 4 inches any more. I got my second RES a couple of days ago from my aunt. My second one is a little bigger than a quarter. And we have a 3 toed box turtle. We found my box turtle at my mom\'s when it was smaller than a quarter. I was curious at what age they would start mating, so now I know we won\'t have to worry about it for a while. My little res has a longer tail than my bigger one but I think my bigger ones tail was long when it was real small too. Thanks again. Becky
