Identifying Species

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.  Please remember that all photos and videos are the property of Dundas Turtle Watch and its volunteers.  We thank you for your respect.
