I believe they're poisonous to eat, but I don't think skin contact would be a problem.

Still can't differentiate. They can look about identical.

Damn, took me near an hour to narrow it down to possumhaw, but you're right. Any idea as to how to be sure?

Thanks! I just spent the last 20 minutes looking through your spottings and....well, I'm jealous. ;)

Yep, that's exactly what it is. Don't know why I couldn't figure that out myself, but after seeing your suggestion, I looked it up and found this page: http://www.allaboutbirds.org/guide/north...
The "agressive rasping call" is a definite identifier. I see and here these guys all around my house very often.

How did you narrow down the species? I can't seem to find anything definitive to identify one I found.

Yeah, there are so many similar looking species in Florida.

I don't know much about turtles, but that looks like a lot of other turtles that have been identified as Florida Red-bellied Cooters.
