Hi again. This spotting appears to be in the "Amphibians of the World" by mistake. When you get a moment, please remove it and look at the "Reptiles of the World" mission instead.

I'm not sure if you are aware, but this turtle is a male. The long front claws and the long, thick tail are the telltale signs.
