Animals from different genera can hybridize if the two genera aren't too distantly related. In fact, genera are rather arbitrary groupings in many cases, not defined by reproductive compatibility but rather subjective ideas about "similarity".

That includes turtles. See the cool examples below:

Blanding's x Wood Turtle
