Identify this guy/girl

Postby Tamika » Fri Apr 06, 2012 1:39 pm

Hi Everyone,

Picked up this guy on the road, close to us in the Free State :(

Could someone help me identify him so that I know exactly what I'm dealing with... could be a african helmeted turtle... but I could be totally off...

Thanks for your help!
All the best!

It is a Marsh Terrapin, did it lay eggs?

Thanks Mitton, I'm on google looking up some info now. Doesn't look like it, I scoured the entire area and it looks quiet desolate, no sign of any marsh land near us :( or any suitable areas for laying eggs... looks like this guy popped out of no where..
