Soft shelled turtle

As with most turtles in Ontario the soft-shelled turtle is endangered.
In certain areas they are fairly common but only in a few areas.
This turtle was confiscated when the owners tried to sell it.
It now has a home at the visitor centre at Rondeau Provincial Park.
Apalone spinifera
