I need to buy a bumper sticker for Little Red that says “Warning! I stop to rescue turtles!”
In ONE day Himself and I made 3 rescues.
Himself found this tiny fellow almost baked to death on the road. He brought him home to see if cooling down would save him. Obviously it did. He got downright frisky.
Isn’t he cute!?
This guy isn’t so cute. He wasn’t so frisky either…
The coloring on this box turtle is just so beautiful. He wasn’t very social and this is about the most we saw of him.
We took them back in the woods where there is a nice spring fed pond to release them. Cutie and Grouchy were relesased a bit of distance from each other in the pond while Bashful was set free at the edge.
It is a good place for a turtle to live… much better than being smashed to a greasy spot in the road!
