Hi digdugrugjug. I have a couple of suggestions to help you improve your spotting here of this cute turtle. I don't think this is a painted turtle, it is more likely a young River Cooter, Pseudemys concinna. As it is a captive specimen, you could include it the Captive Animals mission. At the same time, you can remove it from the Mammals / Carnivores of the Southeast US missions since this is a reptile and not a mammal, and because aquatic turtles like this are omnivorous while young and mostly herbivorous as adults. You could also remove it from the Dangerous wildlife mission. Please leave a comment here if you have any questions and I'm sure myself or another ranger will be able to help you out. Thanks! :)
