1.List genus and family.
2.What color does this genus turn after death?
3.Why?
1. Family Colubridae, Genus Opheodrys
2. Blue-gray
3. Because the yellow pigment that combines with blue pigment to make the green color of living snakes breaks down, leaving only the blue pigment.

3. What is the difference between males and females of this taxon?
1. Genus Terrapene, Box Turtle
2.They have a hinged plastron, so they can pull their arms, heads, tails, and legs into their shells and completely close up their shells, like a box.
3.Males usually have red eyes, whereas females have brown/dark eyes. Males also have longer and thicker tails than females and a concave plastron. (I'm pretty sure there are more differences too but those are the main ones, I think)

1. Their ideal habitat is shallow marshes/bogs (hence their common name) 
2. The male has a concave plastron and a thick tail. The females have a flat plastron with a thinner tail 
3. The drainage of their quite specific habitat has led to the endagerment of Glyptemys Muhlenbergii
