STATE OF NEW HAMPSHIRE

 

In the Year of Our Lord Two Thousand Seventeen

 

AN ACT declaring the painted turtle to be the reptile of the biennium.

 

Be it Enacted by the Senate and House of Representatives in General Court convened:

 

1  Reptile of the Biennium.  The general court of the state of New Hampshire finds that the painted turtle (Chrysemys picta) is a vital part of the New Hampshire ecosystem which has adapted to our long, cold winters by hibernating in the sand under the state’s many beautiful lakes, ponds, and other bodies of water.  The general court further finds that as the painted turtle was named such from the red, orange, and yellow markings on its head, neck, and tail which look like the strokes of an artist’s brush, it makes a colorful and suitable complement to many of the other animals which have come to symbolize the state of New Hampshire such as the white tailed deer and the purple finch.  Therefore, in recognition of the notability of the painted turtle, the general court of the state of New Hampshire declares the painted turtle (Chrysemys picta) to be the reptile of the biennium.  

2  Effective Date.  This act shall take effect upon its passage.
