Diamondback terrapins are such beautiful looking aquatic turtles, it was a treat to see them at the 2010 New York Turtle and Tortoise Society Annual Show.

While I don’t remember the name of the group that had tables set up for conservation, the diamondback terrapin turtles that they had were spectacular!

DBTs are a brackish-water turtle, a coastal specie, with white / grey colored skin.

They had several turtles on exhibit including a tiny, very cute hatchling and an adult female that was hit by a car (which has been treated and is doing very well).

Enjoy the turtle pictures!!
