Surprise, there is a turtle

When strolling around a beautiful lake in Canada, there are just some things you don´t expect to encounter with. So to our surprise there was this turtle sitting on a log in the pond enjoying the sunlight. Given the red stripe around their ears, it might be a red-eared slider turtle. This species is common pet turtle so this one might have been released to the wild.
