: : I found the turtle referenced below. Can anyone tell me what it is and a little about it? The URL takes you to all my photoes which are just the found turtle.


Actually, from a description I found I think you're right about the Mississippi subspecies or K. s. hippocrepis. It's finally gotten brave enough to stick it's head out and does have "two light lines on side of head" as described at the URL below. It also at least two barbles (like the snapper)on its chin which I hadn't seen described before but certainly makes sense for a bottom-feeder.
