CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - There are many amazing sights to see at the Beaver Marsh in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park.

Summer is in full swing which means it is time for the painted turtle to find a spot on the shore to bury her eggs for them to hatch next spring.

The painted turtle is just one of the many unique aquatic reptiles at the marsh. The reptile got its name from the bright red and black patches along the underside of its shell.
