I used to catch baby turtles and put them in a tank but i felt bad so i returned them where i found them. i have seen them a couple times after i released themAwe. I'm not sure where she came from. I hope it wasn't from petsmart or co. I heard the messed up stuff they do and treat their animals and I don't like the thought of taking a animal out of their natural habitat unless born there. That's the reason I bought my RES. My son and I almost hit a painted turt and he would destroy his tank. He wanted out. So I made s deal with my son if he let him go then ide get him a captive born turtle.
Oh i get it now. yea female torts are a little harder to come by because of people breeding them.I've been on a few sites and one said that females can be harder to come by due to breeding. Females are in higher demand due to the sex. I can care less if its true. I don't plan on mating her. Just didn't know if it was just a bunch of BS or not
