Austin, Travis Co., Texas
10 May 2013
Several turtles were basking on a log emerging from the water, about 5 meters from shore. All but one slid into the water as I approached. This individual was over a foot long, as an estimate. It was a sunny day with temps in the high 70s
This individual was sitting on the bottom of a creek about 2 and a half feet underwater. Was a warm day up to the 80s, but was becoming chilly when the individual was found. SVL - 365 mm
Seen basking on the shore on shoal creek along with several other turtles. Some where on the bank others were on logs. The temperature was rather warm in the upper 80's
Sunny, 73 degrees Fahrenheit, spotted basking on a log in the middle of the creek with several other turtles (T. scripta and other P. texana).
These two (and a third not in the pictures) were lounging on a fallen log; the larger of the two had to be at least 10-12 inches long, maybe longer.
