Notes:
Individually released pet at one point, most likely. An established population of T. scripta elegans has been reported at this location. Upon further examination, and after several subsequent follow-up visits, however, only one individual has been seen for at least several years. This turtle is apparently either able to find a place to consistently overwinter, or this lake is deep enough for it to be able to do so.
