Terrapene ornata ornata
Status Uncommon in Katy Texas, unknown status in Cypress Texas Notes A very uncommonly seen turtle with a highly domed carapace and hinged plastron.  This is a terrestrial species that will spend most of its time in wooded areas and I have only seen one in the Katy area ever that happened to be crossing a street in front of me.
