Don't worry--I don't want to eat them cuz they are too cool to eat! But I am curious if there are any places to get photos of them. Have any of guys ever seen a sea turtle too. that would be pretty cool.
I am always on the lookout for terrapins. Never saw one in the wild. Had 2 that i purchased from a breeder in jesrsey. Had them for a couple yrs. They were the most awesome pets i ever had. So friendly and aware. I used to put them in a kiddie pool in the summer in my garden so they could bask in the sun til 1 night i forgot i left them outside and a raccoon ate them they dont fit all the way inside their shells so they had no protection. If i ever come across them in the wild, i will leave them there and just observe. Beautiful animals.

Never seen a diamondback in the wild up here...just painted turtles, snappers and Eastern box turtles. Thank you for not eating them. They're special little creatures.
This is my Koopa, a free-roaming Gulf Coast box turtle:
