Coastal Plain Cooter

Coastal Plain Cooter

This photo makes it difficult to guess the size of this turtle – actually a coastal plain cooter that I spooted at the Shark Valley portion of Southern Florida's Everglades National Park. It appears that he could be a full-grown turtle measuring maybe 8 or more inches in diameter. Not the case. He was just a little guy, probably only 3 inches in diameter. I spotted him crossing a road, and managed to get a few shots (and made sure he didn't get run over) before he successfully made it across the road.

Available in the following sizes: 8x10, 11x14, 16x20, 20x24
