Greetings traveller!

Here’s a picture for you to enjoy:

River Cooter?

No, I haven’t been in Florida! Ha! Ha ha! This picture was taken in East Yorkshire today. Most feral terrapins are Red-Eared or Yellow Bellied Sliders, with the occasional European Pond Terrapin thrown in for good measure (Though I’ve only seen Red-Eared before. Aww.) This one, however, is none of those rascals. Debate on birdforum seems to have narrowed it down to a Pseudemys sp., probably Pseudemys concinna – a ‘River Cooter’.

Good fun eh?
