Diamondback Terrapin, a species hunted to near extinction along the east
coast, was a regional favorite for some time. Terrapins are brackish
water turtles and one of the big problems I've seen is during the
hatching season, the hatchlings have to cross roads to get to the salt
marshes. Or if you go back a few months, the big momma turtles get run
over and all her eggs die with her.
