Turtle in Ontario, Canada ID?
Aug 18, 2014

I may have to post this to a turtle forum. There are only so many species of turtle in Ontario. Yet, I can't figure out which one this is. I was thinking maybe a Stinkpot Musk turtle but it is missing the yellow line running near the eyes. Maybe this is still forming in a young one. The carapace is arched and the size of this one is the size of an iPhone 5 running from back of shell to head. Long tail was tucked into shell.

Head-on shot.


Someone picked it up for closer look at head.
