Wood turtles are cool. Normally find them in London Co. Don't see nearly as many I use to. It is my understanding that along with habitat destruction, illegal collection for the European pet trade are the main threats to our native populations.

Nothing with them because of the water, some red ears in another.

What you mean by "because of the water"?

In some of the spotted turtle locations in my neck of the woods, many of the juvenile/sub-adult spotteds are missing their rear limbs. I think this may be due to the increase in red-eared sliders. Of course it cold also be due to birds, snapping and/other turtles, mammals.
