"My son received Franklin as a gift for his 4th birthday. I never had a turtle and had no idea how to care for it. He was about the size of a quarter and lived in a small tank with about an inch of water,some gravel and a desk lamp. The poor thing lived in there for 3 years until my cousin told me he needs more space and water. We bought him a 10 gallon tank and filled most of it with water. He also got a dock and is fed live fish. I couldn't believe how happy he looked in the new tank! In a few months he grew 10x his original size. I felt so bad that we were not prepared to care for this gift. Although we didn't care for him properly for the first years of his life, I'm so glad he made it and is healthy. Based off the information we have read he is an adult and can be bred. He has very long front claws. I've noticed a few missing and growing back. Thank you for all the information."
