Terrapins

Its a pity that iRecord does not have a simple Terrapin category because terrapin species cannot always be identified in the field. There are also more species/subspecies in the UK than  the few listed in the drop down menu. To add to the ID difficulties some individuals are the result of cross breeding before being imported into the UK. Terrapins are a non-native species that could benefit from global warming and breed in the UK and therefore it is useful to know their current status here.
