Clemmys guttata

The spotted turtle has a broad yellow-spotted carapace (upper shell), yellow spots on the head and neck, a yellow bar behind the ear, and an extensive black area on the yellow-orange plastron (under shell). Sexual dimorphism is present (male and female appear different). Females are larger than males, but the maximum length is 5 inches. Females also have different eye and chin color, a flatter plastron, and shorter tail and vent location.
