What is a healthy weight for a 3-striped Mud Turtle? She should be her adult size by now at 8 months old and her shell length is approximately 3 inches. Her weight is 3.17ozs/91g, but I can't find anything on the internet about what she should weigh.

I'm not sure, though I wouldn't even know if she were a RES. 8 mos would probably be too quick for her to be full grown. Make sure she's not overfed but not skinny either.
