Surprise!

So we found this turtle close to our house, giving birth and doing her turtle thing! Do you have any idea what kind she is? (The shadow is a bucket we put over her temporarily to stop the dogs from getting at her!)

WOW!  Thats so awesome (and thats a really smart way to protect her from the dogs). I from the pic it looks like a river turtle. Maybe a yellow spotted river turtle? where do you live? anyone have thoughts?
