      Turtle Identification

      Hey there!
      I've had my turtle for five years, but since I bought it when I was young, I'm not sure what is the species.
      I suspect it's a Reeve's Turtle, but again, I'm not sure.
      I really want to know the species so I can give my turtle a better life. I am getting a new and bigger aquarium, so I also want to know what are the essentials for a turtle. Because I got her when I was young, I didn't have much knowledge about turtles and how to take care of them.
      I took some pictures that I hope can help identify my turtle's species. And I'd also ask you to help me identify the gender of my turtle. How do I know if it's a male or female? Thank you for your help!

      I can't identify the turtle but he looks healthy, so way to go on that! +1 on getting a bigger aquarium. Please give him as much space as you can afford. Try to make it as much like his natural environment as you can. I would like to see his current setup. Also check out http://austinsturtlepage.com/
      They have a wealth of information there.
      Welcome to Koiphen, and thanks for posting.
