This was a road-killed, female Painted Turtle. Notice how her carapace cracked and her eggs got pushed out of her. It really surprises me someone hit her. This is one of the most rural, gravel roads in the county, with just one or two homes on it. I would be surprised if there was more than one or two cars per hour on it!
