I\'m trying to determine the age of George. I found him when he was still bright green and about the size of a half dollar. I\'m not sure how small these turtles are as hatchlings, but I\'m pretty sure he was at least a few months old when we found him. I\'m guessing that he\'s close to year at almost 4\", but I could be totally off.

Does anyone know about how big a male RES in captivity is at about a year? Or at least the size of a hatchling, so I can better estimate his age.

Thanks!!

Hi,
My turtles are about a year old and they are only about 3-3/1/2 inches big...my female is about 3/1/2 inches, the male is a bit smaller...about 3 inches.
Hope this helps :D
