Very common across all of Florida, as well as in lower elevations along the Georgia, Virginia and Carolina coasts, the Florida cooter is a medium to large freshwater turtle. Known for its large social groups these turtles are often seen basking together on logs in large numbers in the sun - often alongside alligators.
