Tiny, along with Quania, is one of the oldest babies; it was found in 2013. Back then, this hatchling only weighed 7 grams, so it certainly deserved the name! We were able to conduct a microsatellite analysis on this turtle in the summer of 2015, so try the game below and see what you can learn.

Locus 1 Locus 2 Locus 3 Locus 4 Locus 5 Locus 6 Locus 7 Locus 8 Locus 9
A 260 124 176 190 174 176 196 183 214
B 282 130 176 200 214 176 208 183 214

How does this game work? You’ll need to answer the turtle’s questions and see if we get a match. Be careful to read the turtle’s questions before you answer, because you won’t match if you answer incorrectly. Not matching is also okay, as long as you put in the right number, because we can’t have every young turtle matching with every adult. If we did, we’d never figure out who the parents are! The data that you will need to answer the turtle’s questions appears above, and when you are finished, you can enter your results below.
