Bog Turtle

Glyptemys muhlenbergii

These turtles hunt and forage during the day in the warm parts of the year. When it starts to get cold they will hibernate by burying into the mud or underground springs. Loss of their habitat due to human developments has made these the rarest turtle in North America.
