Spotted Turtle commented on by curtis9980 Michigan11 years ago

This is not a Spotted turtle (Clemmys guttata), but rather a Blanding's turtle (Emydoidea blandingii), ID'd by the bright yellow chin and the speckled carpapace. A Spotted turtle has yellow spots on the carapace and adults do not reach the size of this juvenile picture, but rarely.
