Coastal Plain Cooter (Pseudemys concinna floridana)
A few of these turtles were hanging around the dock from which we rented a small boat, but the water was murky so I couldn't get any good shots. This type of turtle was formerly known as the Florida Cooter and considered a separate species, Pseudemys floridana.

Coastal Plain Cooter (Pseudemys concinna floridana)
I wish this place had been named the Leon Spinks Geological Area, but alas.
