Turtles, turtles and more turtles!

We went to the Natural History Museum in Philadelphia, PA recently.  They have many exhibits featuring dinosaur bones and such.  But they also have live turtles, bugs, honey bees and butterflies!

The honey bees actually had a hive indoors with an access door through a window to the outside so they could do their business.  The hive was in a glass enclosure which made the hive visible for viewing the inner workings.  The butterflies had a habitat that you could walk through to see them in their natural state.

The turtles were really cool.  We saw an Eastern Box Turtle a Yellow Bellied Slider and a  Diamond-Backed Terrapin.  We had a great day and they were a joy to visit.  Here are some pictures of the turtles.  Do you know what the unnamed turtle is?
