Apalone spinifera emoryi
Two Texas spiny softshell turtles were sharing a tire with a large Red-eared slider. They have an olive-brown carapace with a paler band on the edge that is four or five times wider in the rear than in the front or sides. They also have small white spots on top that are near the rear (pic 4 is cropped to show this).
Spotted at the Estero Llano Grande State Park.
