Hi, may I know what breed my (what looks like a) turtle is? I recently got it as a gift and I can't seem to search its breed. If possible, i would like to know the gender of this turtle. Thank you very much!! Now its a hatchling with a darkish brown shell with a beautiful coloured (red, yellow, orange, brown, maybe grey??) bottom. It has a yellow line on its face. It looks more like a turtle than a tortoise to me. It can swim underwater. It does not eat cactus, hibiscus, or carrots. However, I do find that it loves lettuce and tiny shrimp, and two local plants that i don't know the name of (pictures at the back).
