Information about the Western Painted Turtle:
Western Painted Turtles get their name from the brightly colored carapace of red, olive and yellow. As the name implies the Western Painted Turtle is found in the western and central parts of North America. They are commonly seen in marshes, ponds, streams and lakes. They are medium sized turtles, growing to between 4-10 inches long. Painted Turtles are omnivorous, although they tend to eat more plants and less meat. These turtles have the amazing ability to survive the cold winters by actually changing their blood chemistry, which allows them to have their body temperature drop to just a few degrees above freezing. The Western Painted Turtle is the official reptile of the state of Colorado.
