I have a softshell turtle, he is all light green, no other colors. Is he just a common softshell, or is there a name? The only other one I know if is the Florida, and they are dark and have spots, I think.

well there is also the western and eastern spiney softshells. these are light in shell color. identifing them as spiney softshells is to check for rough serrated-like bumps and the rear carapace (top of the shell end near the tail)

did you buy this turtle or catch it? if so where?
