Kinosternon flavescens


Kinosternon is a genus of aquatic turtle known commonly as the mud turtle. They are found throughout the United States, Mexico and Central America, south into South America in Colombia, Ecuador and northern Peru. They are very similar to the musk turtles, but generally smaller in size, and their carapace is not as highly domed. All mud turtles are carnivorous, consuming various aquatic invertebrates, fish, and even carrion.
