Commonly confused with the Eastern Mud Turtle and Common Snapping Turtle, Common Musk Turtles have thin yellow stripes along their faces and down to their necks. This hatchling is about the size of a quarter if not smaller.
Found while fishing in my favorite spot. He was cruising near the shore for minnows.
I enjoy seeing these guys all the time.
