Animal of the day – 11/29/2011 – The Painted Turtle

Painted Turtle

The animal of the day is the Painted Turtle. (Did you know:This is the most widespread and common turtle in North America! While they are frequently eaten while still in their eggs by other predators, the adults only have to worry about 1 main predator, Racoons!

Next time you’re out on a frozen pond or lake in the winter, look to see if you can see one swimming under the ice!
