Spotted and Wood Turtles Pictures Gallery

Revised 7/1/2012
 

All the turtles on this page are in the family Emydidae and genus Chemmys.
This genus consists of the spotted turtle, wood turtle, western pond turtles,
and bog turtle.

There are no subspecies of spotted turtle, wood turtle, and bog turtle.

The western pond turtle has two subspecies:
Northwestern - Clemmys m. marmorata
Southwestern - Clemmys m. palida

While spotted turtles and wood turtles are often sought after for pets,
they can be difficult to keep. The males of both spotted turtles and wood turtles
will chase the females constantly. A wood turtle male may hold a female
under water until she drowns. And adult females can be hard on juvenile males.
Separation of the sexes is often necessary.

 One look at this turtle and I was calling it Red. The red color on the shell is a stain from living where there is a lot of coal dirt and the minerals that go with it. While beautiful, the red colored stain does scratch off.
