Hello Again Thanks all for your help......

Just one more time will i bug ya all :D
Is it possible that this turtle is a young cumberland slider. It was bought in Belgium at a petstore, and I have been informed (wrongly IMO) that res and YBS are not found in Belgium and there was no way it was bought at a petstore. I felt the turtle in question was too light to be a cumberland slider and the head markings seemed wrong, but I am not sure, still learning about turtle species, beyond that of the common snapper and RES :D.

What would be the "distinct" difference that could tell these two apart......a mixed RES/YBS and a cumberland. If there is any.

Thanks Again
