Blandings Turtle

Emydoidea blandingii

Description:

I was about to take a break from gardening/black flies and the baking sun, when I heard a barking dog on the road-front. I went to see what it was and it was the Blandings Turtle, for the third year in a row now. The neighbour and I took a quick picture and I sent her on her way.

Habitat:

-pond to pond -Green River -Forest/Swamp

Notes:

I estimated the size of her; a shell height of 25cm, and a length of 30cm. -Long living turtle species.
