This family of turtles is represented in Florida by more species than any other. It includes box turtles (Terrapene), spotted turtles (Clemmys), chicken turtles (Deirochelys), map turtles (Graptemys), diamondback terrapins (Malaclemys), sliders (Trachemys), and cooters (Pseudemys). Seven of 18 Florida genera and 10 of 25 Florida species belong to this family. “Pond turtles” is a poor common name for the members of this group since they inhabit a wide variety of freshwater and terrestrial habitats from large rivers to desert.
