:Steve,

:Did you get your pink-skinned one from www.turtlesellers.com? What color is the shell now? Has it gotten darker or lighter as its aged? Got any pics?

:Kevin

::I've raised one for almost a year now along with a normal the same age. The normal was a little bigger at first but the pink one has outgrown it so for. It seems like the pinkskin's head is almost twice as big. Measurements: shell 4" and 3 1/2"
::This might have to do with what sex they are. Steve

:yes I got him from turtlesellers,the skin is getting lighter, the plastron is mottled but seems to be turning a cream color.
His skin is losing the brown patches to mostly pink. The shell is brown(has stayed the same so far) I had a little trouble getting him to eat at first but now he's a pig. Might be the goldish turtle or at least a cross? Steve
