This odd looking, pancake-shaped turtle was observed basking on the White Rock Lake dam in late October. The warm mid-fall weather made for a great opportunity to catch some rays. Upon my arrival the disturbed turtle planted his hind feet on the concrete underneath him and then flung himself into the water. A clean and effective getaway!
