I agree. It is surley a 2010 baby as my adults are just now starting to emerge for the year. My guess it hatched in the nest and never emerged last year. The other challenge I have is I do not have a pen. The turtles have free run of the back yard so finding hatchlings is very difficult. I ususally will keep an eye on my females and track where they dig the nest and then pull the eggs and inubate artificially. The good thing is ther is no way for even a hatchling to get out of my yard. So if they go unnoticed its just a matter of time before I come accross them. This nest obviously went untoiced. Back in 2008 I found a pair of young ornates that were 40-50 grams that went unnoticed for several years. Box turtles still intrigue me after many years of working with them.
