    These guys caught my eye. They should be all female and I since have no desire to breed RES I'm fine with that.
    I like raising young turtles and will enjoy watching these three grow up. Definitely have interesting looking patterns.

    Whew! Good thing you included pictures of them little turtles Charlie, I was thinking from the thread title that you suddenly turned lemon yellow.
    And then got pink eyes.

    These two are doing well and growing. I lost the third. The split scute one is much lighter and still has no pattern.

    Yes. I may do a large waterland tub or a 300 gallon stock tank while they grow. If they seem unhappy with my set up or they outgrow it I'll find them a more appropriate spot. They are both females and I don't plan on breeding them but may send them to a friend to breed if they'd like.
