Now that there seems to be no doubt that the originally posted turtle is in fact a Three-Toed I will start to treat her like one, and I am sure she will look even better in the right environment! I actually have 5 Three Toeds (6 now) and canít believe I didnít see the resemblance. I guess I was blinded by that fact that I really wanted it to be an ornate.

I have noticed with the Ornates that the smaller one is very active, moving around the enclosure back to the burrow and then up and about again. The larger one seems content to sit in her burrow only moving to her sleeping quarters or to the feeding dish. I was curious if that might help to give me a guess of the sex as well, in the wild would the males wander more in search of females?
