Points to Ponder
Western Pond Turtle
What do you call a turtle that spends a lot of time in rivers and on land?
A Pond Turtle!
Yes, a pond turtle and no, the name doesn’t really fit. Yes, they can be found in ponds, but also in rivers, streams, wetlands, lakes and in woodland habitats. They can be out of water and on land for upwards of 200 days a year. And sunning on logs and rocks.
