Softshell Turtle Florida history

The Florida Softshell can be found in muddy or sandy-bottomed lakes, ponds, canals, and streams. They enjoy just floating around on the surface of the water, as well as climbing up on a fallen tree limb or enjoying a rest on the edge of the riverbank. They inhabit areas in South Carolina, Georgia, and of course Florida. The Florida Softshell uses its muddy habitat to hide in while awaiting its prey. They eat fish, snails, crayfish, and frogs in the wild. The Florida Softshell is also called the River Flyer - they should not be confused with the Fly Turtle from Australia. These are completely different turtles.
