It’s hard to believe he’s so content. Guess he doesn’t realize that “turtle” is on the gator’s dining list.
There are only two in the next picture, but sometimes you’ll see 5 or 6 lined up on a log. Small ones first. Guess with the smaller shell they can climb on a narrower spot.
Some of them have nice smooth shells and others have an algae or moss like covering. Not sure why. Need to do my homework.
He’s stretched out as far as he can to soak up the warmth of the sun. Sometimes they look like they are flying. They’ll have all 4 legs stretched out as far as they can and be resting on the shell.
