Perfect Miniature TurtlePosted: April 27, 2020
I was walking across the yard in the grass, when I spied this baby turtle.
It is a perfect miniature of a Box Turtle.
Over the years, there has been several female turtles digging nests to lay eggs, but I’ve never seen a baby Box Turtle. The eggs and even the babies are often eaten by raccoons, which are prevalent in my yard. I once found a baby Red Slider turtle heading down the driveway on its journey to the nearby lake. But,this baby Box Turtle is just the cutest and I really wanted to keep it.
I did the right thing and released it in my wooded area with a prayer for a long life.
