salio a un tronco a tomar el sol
This turtle was out on the bank and didn't run away when we snuck up on it. After releasing it, it swam into the lake, but couldn't get underwater, despite trying very hard. Seems something is wrong with this turtle and it is a 'floater' for some reason.

After the Texas Recreation and Parks Society meeting, I went to this little park by TCC. I presented at the conference about iNaturalist too! :)
I think it's this species, but it might be another...
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.
