Talking Found me a Turtle

I was driving home for lunch on Saturday and came up on this big guy.
Goodness he was huge, and I think he was a painted turtle. *shrug*

Anyway I brought it home for the kids to see, cause they dont see a lot of turtles, and they loved it.

Anyway I put him back n everything but I took some pictures, cause he was one of the biggest of his kind ive ever seen really.

Heres a face view:

And heres a size comparison:

Hes a big boy! (or more likely girl since girls are bigger in wild animals lol).

Nice turtle! Looks like an adult female slider, likely a red ear but I can't see the head lol. She was probably in the process of nesting. It is that time of year
