Aliens among us: What strange species are making England home? Cute or not ??

[quote= http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-28896634]Ever since the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles craze of the late 1980s, there have been sightings of terrapins "the size of dinner plates" dipping in and out of English canals.
The animals were native to Florida but they are just one of many alien species making their home in England.
There is also increasing evidence that more unusual species are establishing colonies here, perhaps because of the warmer weather. So who are the aliens among us?
Plenty of pics of various "Species" Wink

There is at least one, who "suns" himself in a particular spot, on the Chichester Canal..... quite interesting for the customers to see..... Yes it is the size of a dinner plate.... !  so the eating must be good,... he ( presumably) has been there for at least 3 years...  There are reports of a second one, in another location on the canal, but I have never seen it...
