The Western Pond Turtle (Clemmys marmorata) rarely lives in ponds, but rather is found near streams, large rivers, and slow moving water. It enjoys basking in the sun on rocks and logs. It feeds on insects, larvae, small fish, frogs, and plants. In mid-summer, females will deposit multiple eggs in sand or loose soil, usually near water. Predators include raccoons and coyotes. This turtle is found on the West Coast from southern British Columbia to Northern California.
