CommentsSpecimen was roughly 1 foot from tip to end of shell. Was not gendered. Had no red markings present on face and had a smooth dark shell. Also had yellow markings on face, and underside of shell. Reference added photos. Point dropped at exact location found. Was crossing the road from east to west. I moved it west by the retention pond to get it out of the road.
