Painted Turtle Chrysemys picta

Painted Turtle Chrysemys picta

Testudines > Testudines > Emydidae

Common turtle endemic to the area. Beautiful painting on skin and carapace. Loves to warm up on tree trunks and stones reaching out of the water surface.

Very similar to the Northern Map Turtle. Identifiable due to the red colors on skin and carapace.

Can be seen in different parks along Saint Lawrence River spring, summer and autumn.
