17-APR-2015 Dale R. Palmer

by Dale R. Palmer

These large turtles are found almost exclusively in Florida. This one is about 16 inches from the front of the shell to the back. He/she didn't move much so I hope all was ok. Once in a while I see one that has been hit by a car. This one looked ok, but didn't move as I photographed it.

What a wonderful catch. We see them occasionally near our house, but not very often.

His eyes are clear; so he's probably fine. Good catch.
