Alamos Mud Turtle

Kinosternon alamosae
Berry & Legler, 1980
Alamos, Sonora, Mexico. August 24th, 2011.

This mud turtle was found crossing a road above the town of Alamos one evening during a rain storm. Kinosternids are notoriously shy, and difficult to photograph; I’ve learned to place the turtle where I want it, back off about ten feet or so, and then use the telephoto zoom to get my shots.
