The two most common turtle species seen in the Dundas area are the Snapping Turtle and the Midland Painted Turtle. You may also be lucky enough to see a Northern Map Turtle or Blanding’s Turtle. However, the possibility of encountering an exotic Red-Eared Slider, a species not native to Ontario, exists as well.
Click on the titles/images below to go to each species’ page for more information and a series of photos collected by our dedicated group of volunteers.
