Notes

This was a small turtle, appeared to be over the minimum size for the pet trade so it could be a released pet but it was smaller than the vast majority of RES I see in the wild here in California, so it could be possible evidence of reproduction. I will try to keep my eye out for evidence of hatchlings.
