Furrowed Wood Turtle

Rhinoclemmys areolata
(DUMÉRIL, BIBRON & DUMÉRIL, 1851)
Yucatán, Mexico. June 27, 2017.

It was a pleasure to encounter several of these turtles crossing the roads in the Yucatán peninsula. They are persistently on the move, making photos a challenge, and can deliver a painful bite (I speak from personal experience).

My Flickr album for this species is here.

HerpMapper records for this species are here.
