Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Apalone spiniferus guadalupensis
Guadalupe Spiny Softshell Turtle

Colorado River, Travis Co., Texas
April 6, 2005

I saw several of these turtles along the river walk running through downtown Austin.  The one pictured here was the largest, about as big as they come.  The Austin river walk is a great place for turtle-watching!
