Its very hard to say - I am prejudiced by the fact that it was purchased in a dime store back in the old days

I did send pics to a couple of "slider" guys and they both said definitely Trachemys but beyond that they could not tell.

D-=-

I admitt i am :Its doesn't appear to be RES as the strip on the head in yellow and not red, even old adult whould show a red-tint if any. Its definitely a yellow tint. Its not a yellow belly.

:Options: RES/Yellowbellied Integrade
: Cumberland Slider
: Tropical Slider: Jamaican, Domincian, Puerto Rican,
: Bahamian, Cuban, or Gran Cayman Slider.

::I don't expect anyone to be able to identify this to subspecies -- though I expect it is a old (with the accent on the "old") RES. Trachemys scripta elegans.

:: Just thought I would throw up the picture as a great example of age related melanism. This nasty huge male was purchased as a hatchling in 1963
