Description

I think I got this identification of Sternotherus odoratus correct. I used my new Texas Turtles & Crocodilians field guide by Troy & Terry Hibbitts for reference. Key characteristics I noted for this ID:

Pectoral scutes rectangular (not triangular)
Plastron small, yellow, with no darker markings
First vertebral scute not in contact with second marginal scute
