:What ype of turtle is that? Is that a hatchling painted. I have never seen hatchlings... just sub-adults and adults.

Hi JJ, yep that is a hatchling (actually almost a yearling) eastern painted. Easterns are some of the easiest turtles to identify - the anterior vertebral scutes actually line up with the costals, which they do not do in the other subspecies.

I have an article on differentiating painted turtle subspecies at;

Or you can take the scenic route and check the link in the Chrysemys gallery in the galleries from the main page linked below.
