Through most of the mid-Atlantic, the painted turtle is the species most commonly seen basking on floating logs and other debris in quiet ponds and marshes. Red-bellied sliders are often found with painted turtles in the Piedmont and Coastal Plain. Harder to find are the eastern mud turtle, spotted turtle, river cooter, and stinkpot. These turtles spend most of their time under the water and hidden from view, rarely basking in the open.
