Default Terrapins

A friend of mine is a biolagist in the SW LA area. They been catching Terripins on Rabbit Island in West Cove in Hoop Nets. I grew up in Hackberry and never knew these turtles lived in this area. I thought it was pretty cool and wanted to share the pictures with everyone.

Terrapins are cool little dudes man. Watched one of them come out of the marsh behind a beach on Rockefeller and high tail it to the gulf. Saw the same one come out of the gulf about a mile down the beach. Pretty cool.

They eat fiddler crabs and snails. They are a brackish water turtle. They caught these when we had a bunch of rain a few months ago.

My little girl is fascinated by turtles. She's on her second pet turtle since Easter. I'll have to show her this thread.

I know, those lips freak me out. Must be used to crush the shells on what they eat.
