Description

Large adult female found mortally injured (maybe) on I-10. Brought home for temporary shell repair to badly fractured plastron - hopefully it can recover. If it survives overnight (it did) a stronger solution will ensue. GTS 2330.

Two leeches are seen contracted on the caudal left side of the carapace.

Description from Wikipedia

Pseudemys is a genus of large, herbivorous, freshwater turtles of the eastern United States. They are often referred to as cooters, which stems from kuta, the word for turtle in the Bambara and Malinké languages, brought to America by African slaves.
