So I got a turtle from my brother and had done some research on it and came to the conclusion she was a TX Map... Or at least some kind of map. I posted on a turtle forum about help with her shell and behavior and was told she is actually a TX River cooter. My family and I have looked through a lot of pictures of both types of turtle, and even some other maps and cooters, but I'm not convinced either way. I was hoping that I could get more help at a few different forums with identifying my turtle. Is there any possibility she's a hybrid? Her shell and head both have markings that point to different types of turtles. Have there been any cases of Map Turtle×River Cooter hybridizations?
