Mary is likely my oldest Turtle. She is probably blind in one eye and has limited vision in the other eye. We often have to feed her separately from the other turtles because she has trouble seeing her food. We adopted her a few years back and she has always had a blue paint mark on her back. when we got her she had the mark and was already named. The previous owners found her in southern NM near Alamogordo and she had the blue mark when they found her. She has had that blue mark for at least 15 years that we know of. She was a full sized adult when found.
