Default Do you know what type this turtle is in the Pic?

Hello everyone…. I am a newbie so be kind!


I have a terrapin and the previous owners told me it was a painted.


It is identical to the advert (link) below (the picture)

Please can anyone confirm?

to the Forum.

Well that isn't a Painted turtle in the picture link. Have a look at Southern, Eastern and Western Painted on Google.

That picture shows a Slider - probably a Yellow Bellied if it has an 'S' in yellow on the side of its head. Cooters usually have a striped head.

If you have recently acquired it and it is a Slider there is now a law banning them. Painteds are also on this list. Did you pay for it?

Post some pictures of yours for proper id and sexing.

I did wonder as I couldn't find a painted that looked like mine.


Oh! ok.


Yes I paid £40 for the tank, Turtle and Gravel.


Sure, how do you post? It is literally identical to the pic.

They are so small I can't really see properly. The first picture looks like a Map turtle head.

Do be aware though with that type of fencing around the pond they can climb and can get through gaps, believe it or not!
