  There's been a new adddition to the family.  I've been on a waiting list for 6 years for this little fellow.  This is another subspecies of Terrapin, an Ornate Diamondback Terrapin:

He does look like he has a bit of an attitude, huh?  If it's female it will grow to about 6 to 9 inches long at the shell, and if it's male it will grow no longer than 4 to 6 inches.

Very Cute. Have you named him/her ?  :)

Having trouble coming up with a name.  I won't know what sex it is for another year or so.  So far I've given two females men's names so perhaps I should hold back.  My wife wants to name it Rasta to go along with the other two names of Ziggy and Marley (both female).

I lent Marley to a breeder in North Carolina in a deal for this new little guy/gal.  The breeder says it was temp sexed for female.... but I've heard that before concerning my other two who were supposedly males.

Any ideas?

Is Rasta a name? Rasta in Hindi means "way" or "route".  :)

For a turtle I like the name "Squidgy".  :)

Congrats.

What does that mean?  "temp sexed for female?"

Do you keep them together or separate?

How about Haile (as in Selassie?)

And congrats on the move.  I'm so happy for you.  Talk to Mike (bocker) about restaurants.

I'd go for Rasta. If it's a boy, you could amend it to Rasta Man.

It's short for Rastafari.

Congrats.

What does that mean?  "temp sexed for female?"

Do you keep them together or separate?

How about Haile (as in Selassie?)

Hey Robert!  I hope all is well on your end.  Regarding your question about temp sexed --after the female lays her eggs breeders incubate the eggs at certain temperatures to achieve a desired sex; at 78 degrees  they will be all hatched as females, and at 81 degrees they all are hatched as males.   Any temperature in between is supposed to give a sexual mix of sorts.

I have to keep the little one separate....  the others may confuse it for a snack.  He is just a tad smaller than a nickel.

I like Haile, but I like Selassie even better.  Ann mentioning Rastafari even sparks my interest.... 


And congrats on the move.  I'm so happy for you.  Talk to Mike (bocker) about restaurants.

Thanks Rob, much appreciated.  Did you ever get that 4 wheeler to run correctly?  Didn't know Mike was near Boston..


I'd go for Rasta. If it's a boy, you could amend it to Rasta Man.

hmmm, that's a good idea too.

 I might have to get some more to go along with all these great name ideas. ;)  If Marley is successfully bred in the Spring I get first choice from the clutch as well.  I currently  have 3 of the 7 subspecies of DBT.   

That's a dream for now until we get into a bigger place...

I've always liked the name Yurtle

Name already taken.   When I was 6 years old  I had a Japanese Reeve's turtle named Yurtle the Turtle, coolest one I've ever owned.  She died when I was 32 of respiratory infection... the guy who gave her to me was a neighbor and he had her for 12 years himself.

More Turtle pics please!!!!!!

-Will

I'll get some more up soon.  The little tyke is so skittish it's hard to get closeups without it diving for cover.  Those pics above were taken about 4-5 feet away believe it or not..lol. 

Spoil that baby as much as you can! 

LOL you know it....

Jeeze, smaller than a nickel? I though s/he was at least two inches or so. Your camera must have an awesome zoom on it to get such a good picture of the little critter from five feet away!

Uh?

No, the 4wheeler is still sitting next to the barn.  Hard to work on when 105' every day.  Now that fall is here I can work on it.

Mike lives in Virginia but it seems like he's in Boston every weekend.  Ok, maybe not that often but he sure knows the place and he loves food
