Painted Turtles

The painted turtle is an aquatic turtle species most commonly found in and around slow moving bodies of water. This fella is of the Eastern Painted variety.

Generally, female painted turtles grow to be larger (about one foot) than their male counterparts. When provided with a proper diet and care, painted turtles can live for 25 to 30 years, with some of the oldest living to be nearly fifty.
