I have a turtle that I believed to be a false map, then I was told by a friend that it was a mississippi map. What is the difference? I looked at piks of both and there doesnt seem to be any significant differences...any help is greatly appreciated!! Thanks!

Thanks...the main difference is in the eyes...the mississippi has white eyes with smaller pupils (makes it look like its surprised or scared) and the false map has either brown or olive eyes with bigger pupils and a black bar across the eye. Kewl...thanks!

It\'s good to be right, it gives you the right to brag about how much you know, even if you don\'t (how are they gonna know?):D:D
