Aquatic Turtles

Aquatic turtles are commonly found in ponds and rivers throughout Alabama. Their characteristically flattened and elongated shells, webbed feet, and long tails help them to glide quickly through the water. The 4-H Center maintains seven aquatic turtles of several different species, all native to Alabama.
