AMNH Subway Art #24

tags: , , , , ,

An unknown (to me) species of sea turtle
(there are seven species to choose from)
as portrayed in tiles on the walls of the NYC uptown subway stop (A-B-C)
at 81st and Central Park West. (ISO, no zoom, no flash).

    Is the question mark in the design? Or did someone add it later?

    My guess is Hawksbill Turtle, Eretmochelys imbricata.
