NASA Captures 'Suspicious' Redbelly Turtle at Kennedy Space Center

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) has shared an image of a redbelly turtle from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, capturing the creature with an intriguing expression that has sparked curiosity.

Redbelly turtles, known for their aquatic lifestyle, are commonly found in large water bodies like lakes, ponds, marshes, and slow-moving rivers and creeks. The image in question was taken on February 29, 2000, at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. In the photograph, the redbelly turtle appears to gaze warily at the camera, reflecting an almost suspicious demeanor.

Located along Florida’s coast, approximately 60 miles east of Orlando, the Kennedy Space Center shares its borders with the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge. Spanning 92,000 acres, this refuge is home to a diverse range of wildlife, including over 330 species of birds, various mammals, 117 types of fishes, and 65 species of amphibians and reptiles.

Established under an agreement that overlays NASA’s Kennedy Space Center, the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge is situated within one of the most productive estuaries in the United States.
