Softshell Turtle

Softshell turtles are highly aquatic, and rarely venture far from water. There are three North American species - smooth, spiny, and Florida. Taken together, they range over much of the eastern North America, including most of the Mississippi River system. They are, however, largely absent from the northeastern United States.


It is simply impossible to predict the effects of lifetime exposure to chemical and physical agents that are not part of the biological experience of man.
