The Red-Eared Slider is another common fresh-water turtle in America. They can grow to a size of about 16 inches and can live up to 30 years, in the wild. Being cold-blooded reptiles, Red-Ears rely on the warmth of the sun to maintain their body temperatures. That is why is they can be found basking in large numbers on rocks or logs around ponds or lakes. My drawing shows one turtle enjoying a stone platform all to himself.

The Painted Turtle (Chrysemys picta) is the most common turtle in North America. They are omnivorous, eating aquatic vegetation, insects and small fish. Their preferred habitat is in slow-moving bodies of water. During the winter, they hibernate in the muddy bottom of ponds and lakes. Wild painted turtles can live as long as 50 years.
My drawing shows the painted turtle’s favorite past-time which is bathing under the warm hot sun, an important source of vitamin D, ensuring a healthy hard shell.
