Map turtle ID request

Post by KSherp »

Taken at Fall River Lake in Greenwood county, Kansas. Date was October 22. Leaning Ouachita Map Turtle, but I understand if they're not identifiable.

I downloaded and magnified the photo, which in that view suggests Ouachitas based on an apparent yellow block behind each eye (though greatly reflected in the upper turtle).
