These Suwannee Cooters were sunning themselves on a log at Wakulla Springs State Park near Tallahassee, Florida. They don’t seem to mind being close together and can sometimes be found stacked on top of each other. Cooters can be up to 16” across. For the most part they are found only in Florida but their range does extend up the Suwannee River into southern Georgia. Suwanee Cooters are on the Species of Special Concern list in Florida.
