The colour of a Painted Turtle's shell varies from brown to black and even green.  Often the shells have colourful red, orange, yellow or gray markings.  The Painted Turtle is one of the most colourful with its right yellow plastron, dark green shell and brilliant red and yellow stripes around the bridge.

Painted Turtles (Chrysemys picta) are the most common turtles of North America.  Living in fresh water, they can be found from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from Canada to northern Mexico.  While the male is smaller in size (3 - 6 in.), an adult female is about 4-10 inches long.

Remarkable
Reptiles !

In the Book "The lectures of Linnaeus concerning the Animal Kingdom", published about 100 years ago, Carl Linnaeus wrote in the beginning of his Chapter on Amphibia that animals in this Chapter are "the ugliest, most cruel and most poisoning".  He expressed that he was happy that our Creator put rather few of these animals into this class.  If there had been more, they would have hurt the other species.

Carl Linnaeus (1701-1778) was a Swedish botanist, physician and zoologist.  He is known as the father of taxonomy and the one who laid the foundations for our current biological naming scheme.
