To anyone who is on, in about 30 minutes I will post pictures of my newest baby, if anyone could tell me what she is I will owe you my life. Is she a water or land turtle? What would be the best home for her? I am in need of major help to give her the best life possible!

Thank you all!!

Let me check on the pictures!

I should still be on when you get back, dyin to know what she could be, so I can get her home just right. Plus Hurricane Ivan is on the way. Makes 3 in 1 month, I\'d like to have her all squared away before we lose power for days again. Sometimes I hate livin In Florida!

Thank you for your help Kim, you\'ve been great!

*Deep breath* Okay, \"RES\" stands for Red-Eared Slider. They are water turtles that are able to stay under water for long periods of time. When the hatch thay are about the size of a quarter and adult females can grow to 12in. long. But she IS NOT an RES. RES babies have light green/yellow colors and their heads are way different. I was checking sites and I sent her picture to a friend but I can\'t tell you what she is. >:( This is really frusterating!!! See, I\'m so upset I can\'t even spell anymore!!! lol I\'m not that upset. Her shell is a lot like an adult RES\'s, though. That\'s all for now!

The shell is a water turtle\'s shell. Like an RES\'s. The way you can tell a Box is a Box is they can COMPLETELY close up. Their shell\'s have these hinge sort of things on their shells, it\'s cool! It helps them to hide from predators. (It\'s what saved my turt\'s life, my dog\'s tried to eat him!)

You said something about her being in sand AND water, then for now keep her in that. That way she can bask and swim. :)
