These gorgeous little Peninsula Cooter (Pseudemys floridana peninsularis) turtles were super challenging to diaphonise. There were four in this batch, and they have all come out very similar in their colours. The cartilage stain didnt grab at all, and the bone stain has been a little unspecific with where it has attached. I can’t say for certain but I suspect that the calcium from the bones was mobilised during the digestion phase. Nonethless, they’re still gorgeous specimens!
Some of these have a little variation in the limbs, with some digits missing from toes, or missing a foot.
