[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This freshwater terrapin was seen in a pool (with a sign that said " green sea turtle") in the Bermuda Aquarium, Museum and Zoo in Flatts Village near the center of the island of Bermuda (my apologies to Bermuda, which I had to put in the Bahamas in order to import this photo, because it is not listed in the country list. It is nowhere near the Bahamas, being out in the Atlantic Ocean, East of North Carolina).

Thank you to Ilias Strachinis for the correction of what this turtle is.

Sorry, but this animal in the photo is just a freshwater terrapin like Trachemys scripta and surely not a Chelonia mydas...
