Turtle ID help? Red-bellied perhaps?

Post by Tally_alotless » October 14th, 2016, 1:37 pm

Hi All! I caught this beautiful lass or lad :) yesterday on our pond. I was thinking "red-bellied" but I am not seeing the characteristic yellow lines on his or her head.
any ideas?

thanks!

That is definitely a northern red-bellied turtle.
