Subject: American Painted Turtle Dimensions (inches): 12 x 16 Medium: Oil Description: The Painted Turtle is a native to North America and is the most widespread of all turtles. It lives in fresh waters from southern Canada to the wetlands of southern Louisiana. Fossils show that the Painted Turtle has existed for more than 12 million years and adults in the wild can live for 50 years or more. While habitat loss, predation, and other factors have reduced the turtle's population, it still remains the most abundant and admired turtle in North America.
