Thank you for the info, yeah, i found out thats definatly what kind it is...and i am going to put it in an outside pond eventually so it wont be cramped up.
I've seen large FL softshells lots of times, but never seen a baby. Being from FL, I figured thats what kind it was and that the guy at the flea market was probably just trying to get people to buy more of them buy saying they were from Louisiana. Anyways thanks again....jen


:Jennifer-- Your hatchling definitely sounds like a Florida Softshell. To make sure, you can do a Google search under "Florida Softshell" (or the Latin name) and look at some pictures of hatchlings. If you have a female, get prepared to own a large softshell turtle! And they grow very quickly. --Maxx
