There hasn't been a question in a long time so I'll ask!
Image
1. Family?
2. Where does it eat? Give two examples of what it would eat.
3. T/F The females are polyandrous. Define polyandrous.
4. Conservation?
Okay, I got the answer without cheating, but the genus is in the URL so be careful :P
1) Emydidae
2) Can forage on land and catch prey in water; frogs and crayfish
3) F; One female gets exclusive mating rights to many males
4) Endangered
Oops :o. Anyways, you are correct! Proceed with the next question!

Describe the difference between viviparity, ovoviviparity, ovuliparity, and true oviparity. Give an example for each (use a reptile/amphibian if possible).

Describe the difference between viviparity, ovoviviparity, ovuliparity, and true oviparity. Give an example for each (use a reptile/amphibian if possible).
Viviparity: Live young, not eggs. Ovoviviparity: Form eggs, and the eggs stay inside the mother until ready to hatch. Can hatch either inside the body or eggs sacs are expelled from the mother’s body. Ovuliparity: (not really sure) fertilization is external. True oviparity: (not really sure either) fertilization is internal.
Viviparous: Storeria
Ovoviviparous: Nerodia
Ovuliparity: Scaohiopus
True oviparous: Elapidae

Yep, except not sure about Nerodia and Elapidae :?

I'm thinking this is a musk turtle? 70%, juveniles are smaller, summer, females, 20-30 degrees Celsius, T

Nope, try again on the identification. (sorry this is a bad angle lol)
