    its shell reflects color like its got oil on it, or looks like color changing paint. the green and purple colors are pretty coo but i have never seen one like this before.

    any one know what it is.

    Nice. I agree that it's a painted turtle.

    LOL I'd call him lucky. First because he got a professional portrait done and second because he was shot with a camera rather than boiled for soup!

    he does look like a painted turtle, i have searched and searched on google trying to find a turtle with a shell like that and i cant seem to find any photos or anything of another turtle like that.

    makes me wonder if its something really rare.

    My first thought looking at the photo is there may be some kind of slick on his shell. Any chance of oil being in the environment where you photographed him?

    Nope, no oil should be in the location, its at a well known park in the area. but you never know.
