How long is his carapace? Chicken turtles stay pretty small like at most 6in. Fl. cooters get more than double that.

:I was given a turtle, and I thought it was a Florida Cooter. However, I am beginning to think it may be an Eastern Chicken Turtle. He has a dark carapace kind of olive green/brown. His plastron is yellow with no markings. He has yellow stripes on his face and legs. He also has a very long neck. It is far longer than the necks of my red-eared sliders. Does that sound like an Eastern Chicken turtle to you all? Thanks!
