Great shots guys...

Google some images of... Peninsula Cooter

Think that may be your turtle.

Hm, kpr... I don't know. I do see some similarities, but it wouldn't make any sense to have one running around in my neck of the woods. Whatever it is, I don't think it's native. We only have a few species around here. We do have some introduced red-eared sliders. Might be a poor color variation of one. It's a mystery. I'll have to try and get a few more shots from another angle when I go back.

Went back early this morning to the same place. Found the snapper again in the same spot, but the other one wasn't there.

Found a different turtle in a different pond nearby... this is definitely a red-eared slider. Still not sure what the other one is.
