Herpetofauna - One Life's List

Guadalupe Spiny Softshell
Apalone spiniferus guadalupensis

Colorado River, Travis Co.  April 6, 2005

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