I came across this little guy walking across our garden. He is a Marsh Terrapin. They do not have a hinge on the underside of the shell unlike most other terrapins in our area.

I will have to go scouting around to see if there is a marshy area or a body of water where he may have come from. There could be more of his species around there and also snakes ….. an ideal spot to do some herping!  🙂 One of my favourite passtimes.
