Turtles in Newmarket

Went on my daily walk this morning and was quite surprised to find out there are turtles in Newmarket. I guess it's not really surprising that there are turtles living near water, but it just never occurred to me that they would be in town.  Tons of birds, squirrels and chipmunks. Lots of geese and ducks - guess they fall under the bird category. :)  Even saw a muskrat, I think, and a few bunnies.

Not sure what type of turtles they are.  Saw one on the east trail, and another about 20 minutes later on the west trail. Possibly Wood Turtles???? They were at least 12-16" long.
