Hi notnoahbell & welcome to Project Noah!
I've moved this to the pets category for you. Where you know the common name of the species, please could you look up & add the scientific name - it is very easy to do on a Google search. That takes the spotting out of the "unknown" list. We would also appreciate it if you could add a reference link & complete some info in the details field for your spottings. The scientific name for this is Trachemys scripta elegans & here is a reference link http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red-eared_s...
You can now add these in edit.
