Deirochelys reticularia chrysea
This is the Floridian subspecies of the chicken turtle, Deirochelys reticular chrysea. I don't see many of these around -- at least not as much as the standard cooter/slider fellas, but they're there. Just less obvious in my experiences. On this day, heavy rains had lured the turtle up to State Road 44 somewhere west of Interstate 95. I have to approximate the location on this one, as I forgot to record it on this day.
