A turtle hiding in his shell near the Great Swamp in South Kingstown, Rhode Island
One of the members of the animal kingdom that we have encountered more often in recent years is the turtle. What we have photographed is one of these retracted into their shell.
In reality, it is more precise to call this shelled creature a "Terrapin". Terrapins live on land and in water, usually in swamps, ponds, lakes, and rivers. This one is resting in the area of the Great Swamp Management Area of South Kingstown, Rhode Island.
