Sweetest turtle face ever :) Spotted crossing a road on Cape Lookout in the Outerbanks of NC.
Thanks Mitch and Marylou. I did some research too. The only Terrapin I remember was in the (Uncle Remus) stories with Brer Rabbit and Brer Fox.
Alice, this individual was found on Cape Hatteras National Seashore in North Carolina. Michael, as far as I know it is either the Northern (M. t. terrapin) or Carolina (M. t. centrata) subspecies, I believe these two overlap in Cape Hatteras.
A terrapin is a genus of turtles that live in coastal areas (brackish or salt water) and generally eat crustaceans, such as crabs.
so cute :)
I would like a little information on the difference between a terrapin and Turtle. Is a Terrapin a land animal like the Tortoise? What does it eat and could you write in where you found it as it will not show it on the map.
wow..so cute..I like it..
Awesome, any idea on subspecies?
