It is pretty much impossible to tell the age of turtles unless you were there when the turtle was born/hatched, there are some people that say you can tell by counting the anual rings on the shell, but the turtle may have a good year and get a couple of rings that year then another year it may not get a ring, so it is really not a reliable way to tell.

A reminder: counting the growth rings will not determine a turtle's age.
