Reptiles/Amphibians - Eastern River Cooter
Class:Reptilia Order:Testudines Family:Emydidae Genus:Pseudemys

I don't know the difference between the River Cooters and Yellow-bellied Sliders. There is a stripe on the back leg that is supposed to be helpful in telling them apart.

All species pages are currently being updated with more useful descriptions and information.
