I’m not sure how many of the turtles here are this species but most appear the same. I have read they grow up to 13 inches long. Compared to some of the locals here I have seen many larger than that. The alligators don’t even mess with them (look at his foot).
Since the large ones don’t get close, and are usually covered in ‘stuff’ I’m not sure how I can tell one from another.
Anyway, this one was clean and stayed on the log for his photo shoot. I obliged.
