Turtle Drawings

Stylemys nebrascensis, from the Oligocene (Paleogene) period – 30 million years ago. Currently on view at the Lora Robins Gallery for Design from Nature, on the University of Richmond campus. Courtesy of the David and Jean Hutchison Collection.

Absolutely boggles the mind that turtles have changed very little since the age of dinosaurs.
