Hi there, please have a look at our FAQ to see how to properly fill out spottings. You say you found this in April 2011, but you put the date as being found today. Filling out the fields correctly is important so researchers can use the information on this site to assess populations. Also, your use of the common name indicates you know the ID of this organism. Since you know the common name, and quick Google search with the common name will very easily give you the common name, which is Sternotherus odoratus. Until you put in the scientific name, this spotting is considered unidentified which is obviously not the case. www.projectnoah.org/faq thanks.
