That's a very modest size for a turt, if it's 9.5" LOA then I would guess that's about 7" SCL, maybe 7.5", which in turt terms is really not very big.

One appeal of this species is their relatively sensible adult size, not the smallest by any means, but a lot more manageable than adult sliders and cooters for instance. The only drawback as far as I'm concerned is that they can't go outdoors, and I do like turts that can spend at least the summer in the pond.
