  • Canadian populations of Blandingโ€™s turtles are found in Ontario, Quebec and Nova Scotia. This medium-sized turtle is known for the distinctive upward curve of its mouth, giving the appearance of a perpetual smile. Blandingโ€™s turtles can also be identified by their bright yellow throat and distinctive domed shell. Found primarily in shallow waters, Blandingโ€™s turtles also make long overland journeys, with some females travelling more than 10 kilometres during nesting season.

    The spotted turtle is named for the yellow-orange spots that dot its shell, neck, head and limbs. In Canada, this semi-aquatic turtle is often found in shallow bogs, ponds, marshes and bays, as well as slow-moving streams in pockets of central and southern Ontario. One of the provinceโ€™s smallest turtles, its shell measures less than 13 centimetres in length.

    Habitat loss, road mortality and illegal collection are among the biggest threats facing Canadaโ€™s turtle populations today.
