The Musk Turtle (Kinosternon scorpioides) is a species of turtle native to the United States.
Musk turtles are almost entirely aquatic, spending most of their time in shallow, heavily vegetated, slow moving creeks, or ponds. The only time they typically venture onto land is when females lay their eggs. Their diet consists of primarily aquatic invertebrates, including freshwater clams, crayfish, snails, and various insects. They also feed on fish and carrion. When a Razorback Musk turtle feels threatened it will release a foul odor, similar to a skunk's.
