Very large adult (approximately 11" shell length) found near Granite Shoals. Was hit by a car but still alive when I reached her. I took her to Austin Wildlife Rescue and while she lost use of her hind legs she was expected to make it.

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.

No range data available.
