Do not paint turtle's shells. Occasionally NH Fish & Game biologists get reports of turtles with painted shells, like this snapping turtle seen in Perch Pond in Campton. Often this is done with good intentions - to make the turtle more visible if crossing a roadway. But, turtle's shells are living tissue and paint toxins can not only get into into their bloodstream, it can also reduce their ability to absorb sunlight and can make them more visible to predators. To learn more about turtles in NH, check out www.wildlife.state.nh.us/nongame/turtles.htmlTurtles | Nongame | New Hampshire Fish and Game DepartmentThere are 7 species of turtles that are considered native to New Hampshire.
