Description:

This was handed in today. Unless I am mistaken it is NOT the alien Red-eared Terrapin....but I've been mistaken before....
Secondly, this is (for me) a new observation on the Liesbeek River in Cape Town....is this guy possibly local, or should he not be released back into the river system.
