Yes she was heavy and the bottom of her shelll was flat. That's cool how you are able to identify it. I will try and remember those small characteristics

Believe it or not, I have kept so many turts that I can usually just "tell." Yours has brown eyes; males have red or orangish eyes. I bet the turts plastron (lower shell) was flat or even rounded. It has the general femine turtle shape that girls have. (Male boxies have more of a "cowboy" look...sort of ruggedly squashed like a well-worn hat.) Was she heavy? She lookes gravid.
