Herpetofauna: One Life's List

Pseudemys texana
Texas River Cooter

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

Along the river walk running through downtown Austin, these cooters are the most common turtle, even more so than the Redeared Slider. I saw dozens, including several hatchlings. I spent a great afternoon observing a lot of turtles and snakes smack in the middle of town.
