Turtles of Illinois

For this quiz we venture away from our feathered friends to another family of vertebrates, the turtles. But amazingly, turtles and birds share some key characteristics—they both eat using a specialized beak and lay eggs, and each group contains species that prefer an aquatic or a terrestrial habitat. Take this short quiz to test your turtle knowledge, and specifically the turtles you may encounter on your explorations of Illinois.
