Thanks Barry, looks good to me!

This guy was huge compared to the ones I normally see. At this time of the year I see them crossing the road. Unfortunately a lot of squashed turtles too :(

TURTLE IS A RED EARED SLIDER -

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red-eared_slider

SAYS THIS SPECIES IS FOUND IN THE SOUTHERN UNITED STATES-

WE HAVE THOSE IN B.C. ALSO

[=violet]IF YOU BLOW UP YOUR PHOTO OF THE TURTLE YOU WILL SEE THE RED

SLASH ON BACK OF ITS NECK NEAR THE SHELL

P.S. I COULD BE WRONG LOL --

The painted turtle (Chrysemys picta) is the most widely distributed North ... northern Oklahoma,

in british columbia we call it a painted turtle -

The Painted Turtle is the only native pond turtle left in B.C. It can be confused with the introduced Red-Eared Slider. To tell the two species apart, look for the telltale red “ear” mark on the Slider. Painted turtles do not have any red markings on the neck or head.

In the wild, this turtle may live for twenty to thirty years ; in captivity, it can live over twenty years.

Great pics!
Shortcut, thanks for posting the possum pics :D I didn't know that was how the possum carries her babies :shock:

Deer in the yard sounds like heaven to me :)

I love the snake pic Katja, they are always too quick for me :roll:

Tonight I went for a walk and I came across this turtle, I don't know what species he is though.

I was surprised to come across this grass snake (Natrix natrix) while walking in Kongelunden Forest in Copenhagen last weekend.
