Arkansas Tick....we grow'em big!
Found this busy feller in my garden awhile ago!
Just curious, what type of turtle is he?
I would like lots more, I read where they eat snakes!!
Awww! He's so cute! We frequently see turtles trying to cross the road, so we pull over and I go out and help them along to the side that they're trying to get to. They're always so cute! As to what kind it is, I've been Google searching for a while and I haven't found any that look like him. Hmmm.......
That's not a turtle, itsa Arky tic thingy.
if I saw a "tick" that big on me I would scream!.........loud
LOL! So would I.
That's not a Slider of some sort? Red eared or yellow eared?
They might not call the yellow eared ones "sliders", though.
EDIT: I took a Louisiana natural history of the vertebrates class last spring, and we had to go out and collect all sorts of stuff, preserve them for the museum, and identify things on sight by common and scientific name. I have a key SOMEWHERE around here that explains how to "key out" a turtle. (And mammals and other reptiles, such as lizards or snakes). Gonna see if I can dig that up. Might be at my other house, though. I know I kept it.....
EDIT AGAIN: Here's something like what it's supposed to read. This one is from New York, so I don't know if you'll have the same type of critters, but it's fun to do: http://www.cortland.edu/herp/keys/turtkey.htm

well, you know...lol the red "blush" on the side of the head! They may call the yellow sided ones cooters. I'm not sure, don't remember. Anyway, it's fun to key out frogs and toads and stuff like that. Gets deep sometimes, you have to check out their tongue! ew!
LOL! That almost Tricked me! Phew, I am glad those are not real,
