While collecting trash from the lagoon, I found this dead and decaying turtle floating in the water. I thought that it was a toy turtle until I picked it up and saw the dangling head. Its limbs were missing, and it stunk badly from decomposition in the water. I'm guessing it's a slider? The only turtles I've seen here are Sliders.

After a few days the neck had decomposed away, leaving the skull. The body still had a lot of meat and flesh.
