"house" turtle????

Depends on the species.  Mud turtles are popular and only grow to about 4-5".  Cooters are also popular and females can be 16+".  Then there are snapping turtles and softshells - FL softshells can be 2 FEET long and often have a very nasty disposition.  They are popular in many petstores too.

NO turtle will grow only as large as it's environment, so you should look around for a turtle field guide and ID them as soon as you can (or go to & post pics)
