Painted turtle

Chrysemys picta


Small turtle with black shell and splashes of orange color around the edges of it’s shell that make it look like it was painted.


They prefer aquatic habitat with aquatic vegetation. They can be found in lakes and ponds.


I found this guy in the grass near a swampy area.
