I saw a turtle yesterday and was wondering if anyone knows what kind it is. I live in South Jersey in Ventnor which is a narrow strip of land inbetween the bay and ocean. At high tide, the sewer becomes a vertual aqarium with all sorts of salt water fish. I noticed a large herring down there when a big red and black turtle came swimming by. It resembled a painter turtle although it was much larger than any I had ever seen. The shell was approx. 11 inches across. Again, it had a checker design with black sqares and dark red inbetween them. Any ideas?
