    Found this tiny thing while doing some testing on one oof my float planes. Saw him dart under a leaf as I approached. Feisty little bugger, and none too happy about being caught. Common musk turtle hatchling. Less than an inch long, that's my thumb in the one shot for a size comparison. 20160630_204022.jpg 20160630_203945.jpg 20160630_204029.jpg

    We called them little musk pots. They stay small, relatively,

    So cute! They definitely stay small - my 20 yr old stinkpot is only 3 inches SCL.
