In a pond.
Me too! I always feel a little sad when I see another red-eared slider spotting from California, since they're not native.
Aaron,I really appreciate your feed back and help in ID. I am extremely happy that I spotted a turtle other than a red eared slider!!
Nice shots, Emma. Based on its appearance, I'd say yours is an older male.
Sorry, Emma. I don't know turtles well and it takes me forever to ID one. Hopefully one of the turtle experts can help!
Thanks Maria. Do you think that this is a red eared slider? I can identify one on ground.Underwater i am not sure. I can see a ridge running across it's back.
