Checkout this beautiful girl I found today and couldn't pass up. She'll be quarantined for a little before she joins the others. Any opinions on if this is just a regular Red ear with unique colors? Or possibly some kind of intergrade?IMG_20190901_133140526.jpg IMG_20190901_133151812.jpg IMG_20190901_134630047.jpg

Not yet, still thinking of one. It has to start with an "S". I already have Speedy, Spike, Spud, Snap, and Sheldon, any suggestions?
When @Moozillion pointed out the double row of scutes and I looked at the picture again, it sort of struck me as dance steps... You know, like the shoe prints on the floor in cartoons, when a character was trying to learn how to dance? The (potential) name Two Step came to mind... Step begins with an S. :)

She's the seventh turtle so I think I might call her "Seven".

Ah, another Trekkie. Jeri Ryan was memorable in that role.
Exactly! Amazon Prime TV is great for reruns, too... :)

@Toddrickfl1 might have to name one of the next two, Star. Maybe he can switch to T names when he gets terrestrials. Tiberius would make a great name for a male! :p
