Blanding's Turtle, Mason County, MI, April, 2017
Blanding's turtle is considered endangered or of special concern in Michigan. The shell is high and round. Note the spotting on the shell in the front right where there is less mud. They prefer secluded wetland areas, but will roam to nest. This one was crossing a road, and the photographer moved it to the shoulder.
