The Spotted Turtle occurs along the Atlantic coastal plain from southern Maine to northern Florida, as well as most of Pennsylvania, Ohio, Michigan, and Indiana. They are small, usually less than five inches long, with secretive habits. They overwinter in mud, or sometimes in muskrat burrows.

We're not just losing single species here and there, we're losing entire assemblages of species and their habitats.
