    The spotted turtle is endangered by loss of habitat, declining water quality, and pet collection.

    A loss of marshy grasslands has lead to a decline in the number of spotted turtles. They like these wet, grassy areas found in places like Ohio and Illinois. However, many have been drained and houses or businesses have been built on the land.

    Furthermore, spotted turtles are very small and cute. Many have been illegally collected for the pet trade.
