I would say that your turtle is almost a year old. I have heard that some people put their turtles in a hamster or ferret balls to let them run around on the floor. There really isn\'t much out there that allows you to interact with your turtle so I don\'t really know what to tell you. Good luck with your search.

When you look at the line you drew on the computer screen it looks longer so I origanally though your turtle was about 2 inches but then my friend replied and said that it is the same size mine was when I got her, I didn\'t think so until I printed the line out. When I did this it was a little over an inch so I agree with Tinkerbell, you have a young turtle I would say about two to three months. I am sorry for giving you the wrong information in my previous post but the line looked longer, I think it is the screen, my friend has a laptop which has a flat screen so she was able to get a better picture. As far as the ball I have never done that because I was afraid my turtle would flip over and not be able to upright her self I heard they can\'t breathe on their backs but I am not possitive, people have said that they do this so if ya want to try go for it. Good luck with you little ones.

i bought my RES from a lady who breeds turtles and she told me my turtles were about 10 days old when i bought them and they were ___________ big. Now my RES are 1 1/2 month old and they are about
_______________

so i think your turtle might be around 3 months old or 4.

hope this helps you =D
