hi

When you buy from artsofnature...like they advertize u get 1 1/2 to 2 inches...then turtles generally grow 1/2 to 1 inch a year...

These are red ear sliders they can grow to 4-6 inches for a male and 6-10 inches for females appx

but that would take a long time

BTW selling turtles with shell size below 4 inches is illegal (bcause of salmonella )...but artsofnature (see ad) have salmonella free certified turts..
and they are giving turts for adoption(educational/display etc etc....)
Cost wise one hatchling from artsof nat costs almost the same as a 4-6 inch(full grown res) in petsmart or Jacks aquarium....

RES aren\'t the smallest turtles that you can get but they are the easiest to take care of. Check out my site at: http://www23.brinkster.com/seansplace/default
There is alot of information about different turtles on there.

I find that box turtles are fairly easy to take care of, and they usually stay smaller than res\' depending on the species. I could never afford the filters and pumps for aquatic cages. Therefore they were messy and very hard to clean. Box turtles are much less messy and smelly in that respect, and on average, cheaper to maintain.

Cheers!
