Comments: Habitat includes large rivers, river impoundments, lakes, ponds along rivers, pools along intermittent streams, bayous, oxbows; usually in areas with open sandy or mud banks and soft bottom. These turtles bask on shores or on partially submerged logs. Periods of inactivity are spent burrowed in bottom sediments in well-oxygenated sites. Eggs are laid in nests dug in open areas in sand, gravel, or soft soil near water.
