Mud Turtle

After today's big rain, it is the rainy season....we found this guy when we came back from a quad ride.

He is a white lipped mud turtle, Has single-hinged belly armor that can be closed completely. Is one of the very few turtles in the world that inhabits cascading mountain streams.  Kinosternon leucostomum  Their diet consists of fish, earthworms, mealworms, snails, and some plant matter.
