More TurtlesPosted: July 15, 2016
There is something about my backyard that seems to attract turtles. These photos were taken several years ago of a pair of Box Turtles. Box Turtles have visited frequently. The turtles blend into the leaf debris and are hard to see.
Well, these two were definitely up to something. The smaller one with the bright orange head is a male. I once had a sighting of a female digging a hole to lay eggs, but she changed her mind. Many turtle eggs do not hatch because of predators eating them.
Take a look at this previous post of a Red Slider that showed up also.
