The Bog Turtle (Glyptemys muhlenbergii) is one of the smallest turtles globally. Unfortunately, the Bog Turtle is facing extinction and is listed as a federally-threatened species by the United States Fish & Wildlife Service. The turtle is also endangered in every state it has been seen in. 

The turtles is very small and will be no taller than your ankle. The turtle will also have two, very distinct, bright orange, marks on either sides of its neck. If you find a turtle fitting the description above or the picture, then please leave it alone! The turtles are not meant to be kept as pets but rather in the wild.
