Diamondbacks are some of the most beautifully decorated creatures in the Terrapin family. My illustration displays the brilliant orange crystalline-like scutes on the carapace of the shell, although the turtle appears in a wide variety of patterns and colors. They can be observed in the brackish marshes and rivers in the Chesapeake Bay. With their strong horned beak, they like to feed on mollusks and crustaceans.

For my pet turtles, which are Red-Eared Sliders, I made a video on How To Clean Your Turtle Tank. Please feel free to check it out and let me know what you think! https://youtu.be/z8J7UED_F9U
