The painted turtle, Chrysemys picta, is a common turtle in the slow moving, freshwater waterways of North America. One of the more attractive turtle species, the painted turtle's pretty shell also serves as a major deterrent to would-be predators as it is too hard for most predators to bite through. Painted turtles hibernate in the winter but are a common sight in the spring and summer.
