midland painted turtle hatchling

Newer Older

A recently hatched midland painted turtle (Chrysemys picta marginata) found in an Ann Arbor Park. I can't find it in my notes (sloppy work on my part), but I think it was Dolph Park. Taken in late July 1998. I have a Blandings Turtle hatchling in the same pose here.

    My wife just found one about that size. It's shell is about the size of a quarter. Guess she felt bad about almost stepping on it because she brought it home and put him in his own tank and got a bunch of stuff from the pet store. Guess we got a new pet.

    They hatch in the fall, but often spend their first winter in the nest and come out in the spring.
