Day 174 - No Sting Here

How do you know if your RES, or terrapin, is a boy or a girl? You wait. Lots of 'experts' will offer judgement, but the reality is, short of chopping them open, you need to wait and see. A boy will have a huge tail and grow stupidly long claws, which will become evident after about a year. I have nine girls. My one boy, Itchy, kindly posed for this photo.
