Baby Florida Softshell Turtle
October 16, 2013 10 Comments
We were so lucky to spot a baby softshell turtle while hiking at Saint Sebastian River Preserve in Florida. It looked like a flat round seed in the sand! Softshell turtles are named for their soft leathery shells, and spend much of their time in water. They have webbed feet and use their noses as a snorkel when they swim. Adult Florida softshells can get up to 2 feet long!
