Heads up - The western painted turtle (Chrysemys picta) is the only turtle native to Idaho and its natural distribution is northern Idaho. Because they are prey for ospreys and raccoons, they may look relaxed, but remain alert and disappear quickly in the water at detection of any movement. In Idaho it is a protected non-game species, but this one was caught on camera basking by the Clearwater River. Photo by Nan Vance
