Freckles is another turtle that we don't find too often. It also isn't old enough to tell if it's a boy or girl.

Like Ford Prefect and Googol, Freckles is a large juvenile that might soon be maturing, although we still can’t be sure if it is a male or a female. We’re also not sure where it spends most of its time in the Riverside courtyard, because we only find it every once in a while. When we checked Freckles’ genetic markers (called microsatellites), not all of them came as clear as we’d hoped, and two of them registered as zero (“0”) because they didn’t copy correctly. As a result, two of the alleles (copies of the microsatellites) are called “null alleles,” and they will show up as question marks in the game below.

Even with incomplete data, it appears most likely that Freckles’ parents are Boxy and Yedlin, but you can always double-check other possible mothers and fathers in the activity below:
