Hi!
Just because your turtle has a red ear, that does not mean that it is grown. You could determine a turtle\'s age by it\'s size and weight. My cousin found a turtle in the Hudson River that was about 50 years old! I did not know that it was so old when I took it to the nature center at my local park. I was told that b/c it was so heavy & big, and b/c of the scars it had on its shell, they figured that it was about 50 years old.
Hope this helps! :D
