Terrapene carolina major
Tate’s Hell State Forest, Franklin Co., Florida. July 21, 2009.
This old girl was crossing a sand road in Tate’s Hell on a blazing hot July afternoon. It was blazing hot, and the white sand made a sunny blue-sky day even brighter, so I took her picture in the only shady place around, under the vehicle. Her carapace shows the posterior flaring of the marginal scutes, typical of this subspecies.
