Diamondback Terrapin

 

(Malaclemys terrapin), a fresh-water turtle. The flattened carapace measures 15–20 cm in length in females, and 10–14 cm in males. The digits are webbed. The diamondback terrapin is found along the eastern seaboard of the USA, where it inhabits salt waters and brackish, swampy waters. It has a lifespan of 20–30 years. The female lays 20–30 eggs per season, which she buries in the ground near shores. The diamondback terrapin feeds on crustaceans, mollusks, and insects. It reproduces well in captivity and is raised for its prized flesh on special farms.
