Had seen many "couples" of these turtles in mid February. Must be mating season for them.
Photographed at 6 Mile Cypress Slough Nature Preserve in Ft Myers Florida. Aquatic turtles.
No shortage of these aquatic turtles in SW florida. They appear to be vegitarian. Have seen many grazing on aquatic plants.
