Description

Surrounded by hundreds (HUNDREDS!) of red-eared sliders, I noticed this guy in the pond at El Dorado Park. It's probably a released pet. ID verification would be appreciated.

I don't know if there are more than one of these guys. Nobody seems to mention these as having an established population in California.

A small number of green sea turtles regularly visit the San Gabriel estuary. Apparently, they are attracted by the warm effluent from a power plant.
