Daily Image - 2 June 2011- Peek-a-boo

The Eastern Painted Turtle, Chrysemys picta picta, is the most common and most colourful turtle in Nova Scotia. They are common in southwestern Nova Scotia, becoming less common or absent in the northeast. They seem to be most common where lily pads and pickerel weed grow, eating insects, snails and bits of lily pad. This shy fellow, about eight inches long, was crossing the Lake George Road in Norwood when I discovered him and helped him across, before he was squashed by a passing car.
