New friend for RES?

I have a RES who got beat up when he was a baby by an older RES. I seperated the two and he has been alone ever since (unfortunately I lost the older one a few years ago). He\'s around 7 yrs old and it seems to me that he\'s quite a mean turtle now and was wondering if RESs are normally that way or if he was somewhat traumatized by the injuries (lost chunks out of front legs, lost his tail, scarred his shell). If it is not normal, should I reconsider housing another turtle with him? Strange kind of question I know...

I would think it\'s o.k. as long as they stay far enough apart.
