Notes:
This turtle was on the bank of Putah Creek where it runs through the UC Davis campus. I identified the turtle as a red-eared slider by the yellow stripes on its neck. The only other turtle species normally found in this area is the western pond turtle, which does not have yellow stripes on its neck.
