Red-Eared Slider

This Red-Eared Slider is one of the turtles we were looking at yesterday in Row River Nature Park. You can easily see the red slash behind the eye, and note the yellow stripes on the neck and tail.  Identifying this non-native is important, and raises concern because Red-Eared Sliders crowd out native species like the Western Pond Turtle.
