Hi from Max from Italy!
My turtle, Dolfi, is 5 y.o. My girlfiriend bought it and now I take care of it.
It's a Trachemys, but I don't know of it subspecies. If you can help me to identify it, I will be thankful to you all.
Can you help me to know if (he or she) is a female or a male? If this it's uncertain to determine, how much time I have to wait before knowing? And, in the case if it is a female, when (she) will start to lay eggs?

Best regards and happy Sunday!

@MaxRome Your turtle is definitely a female. It is a hybrid of Trachemys. Mostly Yellow-belly but looks like some Red-ear or Cumberland mixed in the genes as well. It is not a pure Yellow-belly but a beautiful turtle and looks like you are doing very well keeping it nice and healthy.
