I posted about a female, wieghed 11 lbs, shell was 23" in lenth and 13.5 inches in width. I was not sure what to do with her. I had her in my tub over night. I went into the woods that are behind me. There was a huge pond back there. It is about a 15 minute walk into the woods to the pond. Anyway, the reason I am posting, to let you all know, I did not keep her, and returned her back where she came from. I can not sleep knowing she is safe in the water as she should be :-).
