Wordless Wednesday

Florida Red-Bellied Cooter or Pond Slider


My husband found this baby turtle in their swimming pool turned pond in Jacksonville. At first my husband thought it was a frog, but it's a baby turtle and it's just a hatchling.

Here is another pic


That's it for now, Mabuhay!!!

  6. He is cute but devilishly shy. If you get too near him he plops in the water and swims away. This species of turtle is widely captured for the pet trade and is rather common in the wild in North Florida/ South Georgia.
