While at a friend’s cottage at Buck Lake near Westport trying to locate loons, I came across this turtle. I did not think much of this drab looking painted turtle until Francine posted a similar turtle and it got me to thinking; I’ve seen one before and this is it! It’s a Northern Map Turtle!!

    I’m glad I was able to you out on the id Daniel. The one I photographed on Petrie… at first (because of its large size) I thought it was a snapper… but quickly dismissed that when I saw the yellow shell underside. Glad I can help and btw- wonderful capture!


  • Thank you on both fronts Francine
